running roxio creator / MyDVD 9.0 DE on a Dell Dimension E520, Windows Vista Home Premium.  For some reason I don't have access to MyDVD software or any DVD software, other than being able to use a dvd for backing up data.  I reloaded the complete software package and get a error that there is some type of software or driver missing. Anyone else having this problem?

My DVD 9.0 is a Dell OEM product so it so it s a cut down versions of the full software. In addition is is pretty old.

Please explain about "No Access to MyDVD".  Dos that mean you can't open it or does it mean that you can't use the applications?
That error message is important in trying to guess what is wrong wit the installation/operation.  We would need the actual message text.

In the meantime, see if anything here matches your symptoms.

The DE version is an OEM version with some parts surgically removed as erquested by Dell.

It's possible 'buttons' are still there but the needed applicatyion isn't. You woul need to contact Dell to find out (and don't let them fob you off with 'we don't support software' - part of the OEM agreement is that they DO)
If it ain't broke, fiddle with it until it breaks, then fiddle with it until you get it fixed

yes, we understand that.  You must get help and perhaps a update download from Dell.  Sorry.
