Wakim Posted November 2, 2006 Report Share Posted November 2, 2006 Hi, and thanks looking at this. I re-installed Window's on my PC last weekend, and the one thing I forgot to do ahead of time was make sure I knew how to get this working again. I re-installed Window's about 11 months ago, and had this problem where I couldn't get Creator Classic to recognize my DVD RW Drive. I scoured forrums for a while and finally found a fix that worked by editing a registry value. It's a clean install of Window's with all updates. The updates on this site haven't changed since the last time I installed, and my Classic Creator is version 188.8.131.52, which should be the most up to date for the US English version. My drive is _NEC DVD_RW ND-1300A Window's explorer does recognize it as a DVD RW drive, and the Drag to Disk also seems to recognize. When I installed the program and updated the engine I did have to re-boot several times. It disabled my anti-virus, so thinking that might be part of the problem I un-installed and re-installed disabling my AGP anti-virus and ZoneAlarm firewall. I still had to re-boot an inordinate number of times. I would get the message "Roxio assistant has successfully updated you registry: Return code: TBC" and then be asked to re-boot. I did find this link in another post, and tried both of the suggestions here. http://kb.roxio.com/content/kb/Photosuite/EPS000399 From what I remember of the last time I got this to work the registry entry seems to be more like this one I found researching this, but my drive shows up with an accurate value here. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;316529 Any help would be appreciated. I don't really use anything but Classic Creator to make the occasional data disk or music CD, and would rather not upgrade just for that. When I open Creator Classic, I should be seeing my DVD RW down in the lower right hand corner as the default drive, but it say's N/A, and I can't change it. I tried putting a blank CD in, and it kept on saying I needed to put in a blank CD. That same disk worked with Drag to Disk. I can't believe I didn't save the instructions from the last time this happened! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
