I am having absolutely the exact same problem with EMC 8 as "cajun 1955" did in July '07.
Was there a fix found for the problem?
I have been using EMC 8 for more than a year. Then all of a sudden a week ago, when I tried to use my DVD drive (e.g. with Disc Copier) my DVD drive is not recognized. I have no problem using my DVD drive for playing movies.
I have also tried ALL the fixes suggested by Roxio, which includes the link provided by "Beerman". I have also rolled back to Internet Explorer 6 and to Media Player 10.
I'm using Windows XP Home, SP 2
intel celeron CPU 1.70GHz
1.72GHz 1.50 GB of RAM
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Also desperate, but in Ontario
