Cool CD /DVD Writer Problem

sponsored links

 
Having problems with my CD/DVD combo writer...All the programs I use to access my CD rom drive have stopped recognising it except for one program - (Audio Cleaning Lab 2004). Only after I open a music CD will other programs such as Windows Media Player and Explorer recognise whats on the disk!

I've run registry cleaning software, changed DMA settings, uninstalled the device and nothing is working.

Any suggestions?

What is your operating system? (If it's XP, there are Registy hacks you can perform that may help)

Is the drive displayed correctly in My Computer and Device Manager with no ? or ! errors?

Cool

I'm using XP...

Everything appears fine in the device manager, telling me the drive is working properly.

I put a CD in the drive, it thinks about it then nothing. Explorer sees the drive there (E but doesn't see whats on it

Any help would be great!

That solution didn't work but it did highlight that there is a known problem with Roxio Easy CD Creator interfering with Windows XP and CD ROM drives. So, after looking at Roxio's website they have a registry fix for the exact problem...I'm back in business!

Thanks for your help.
Cheers
