"No drive detected" in RecordNow products



I bought a Dell a few months ago which came with a combo DVD/CD burner

(H-L Data Storage model GSA-H21N) and Roxio Creator MyDVD Combo Plus

version 6.


I have never been able to write a CD using any of the RecordNow products.

I can write DVDs with MyDVD Plus, and I can play and burn audio CDs using

Windows Media Player but not with the Roxio software.


The problem is that whenever I start any of the RecordNow products, they

say "No drive detected" when the drive is visible in My Computer, and the

Device Manager says the drive is okay. I have tried uninstalling the drive

and installing a brand-new Sony drive and still have the same problem, and

Media Player seems to work, so it's not the burner hardware.


I tried Dell support; after five hours of: uninstall Roxio, install Roxio, uninstall

drive, install drive, install some freewere burner software that didn't work,

uninstall it... Dell decided that I should reinstall all of Windows next. I said

thanks very much, it's been fun, see you later. The responses on this forum

seem pretty knowledgeable, so hopefully someone here could help?


Thanks in advance!!
