Roxio Issues

    I hope I'm in the right forum. I couldn't think where else to post this one so here goes. I was trying to burn a dvd-r with nero but I had no luck. It would load the file but the burn would take less than a minute and I would be left with a blank disk. I think it might be a media issue as the kind I ws using is not recomended by the manufacturer (lg 4040b). Anyway, I loaded my friends copy of roxio ez cd 5 and downloaded the xp patch but my burner still doesn't show up in my computer. I figured that I would just dump Roxio and get some new media for nero. Unfortunately after I uninstalled roxio I still can't see my dvd drive in my computer. Anyone seen this issue before? I can't do anything till this is fixed so any help is appreciated. thx

    Also, I removed the device from device manager and checked the cables to verify they are connected. When I rebooted I got a "new hardware " prompt but it faked me out and didn't install anything.

    I installed a new dvd writer and had to go into my bios and set it up in there before my system would see it in exployer. I had to set up bios as auto for it to work.

    Try it it may just help friend.

    straubd,

    1. Just a thought but, as you mentioned you installed an XP patch and all was right before you installed Roxio -Why not go into "Restore" Function and reset your "Puter" to a date prior to Roxio playing in your system ??

    2.Purchase some top grade media.
    Better to spend $$ and have DVD backups than save $$ and have a ton of extra coasters -

    3. If you still have problem, come on back and we'll teach ya how to "Blister" the walls with Nero -

    Oooooohhh Ya, and

    Welcome to the neighborhood -

    Your "Uncle" Pete said that -

    hey scuba,
    Not a bad idea but I'm gonna try one more thing before I go back to a restore point. I just ordered some Ritek 04? media for this drive and once I get this issue resolved I'm gonna burn some goodies.

    straubd,

    I use Ritek 4X media and Verbatim and I don't have a media issue - in my opinion. you can't go wrong with that stuff.

    Good luck,
    "P"
