no, i don't think so.
i'm not sure but i think Easy CD Creator works will all drives (isn't locked to a particular brand like Nero sometimes is).
if Easy CD Creator doesn't recognize the new Cendyne, the reasons are probably:
1. there is some problem with the computer (same problem that stopped it working with the original burner).
2. the version of Easy CD Creator you have is rather old, so it doesn't recognize the (new) drive.
for #2, a simple solution is to go to www.roxio.com
and download an update to the software.
i'm assuming it is Easy CD Creator 5 basic, not Platinum, that you have.
here is the software updates page (for ECDC5) at roxio:
http://www.roxio.com/en/support/ecdc/so ... esv5.jhtml
and assuming it is the basic version you have, then the link at the bottom takes you here:
http://www.roxio.com/en/support/ecdc/ec ... dt53.jhtml
download the update (the latest one is ecdc_v220.127.116.11_basic_enu.exe).
if Easy CD Creator still doesn't recognize the drive (not likely IMO), you may need to update the drive database, by clicking on the link at the bottom right of the same page DriveUp5.3.4a.exe.
if updating Easy CD Creator doesn't solve your probs, then it must be #1.
in order to help you out you must provide more info on your system, like cfitz said. (this may be actually quite likely, since there must be something afoot, that cause the first burner to stop working right)
