BSOD and Sonic(DRVMCDB.SYS) is the problem

Question

I get the BSOD from time to time, and Microsoft says the problem is DRVMCDB.sys with Sonic Solutions. I run on a DELL with Preinstalled Sonic Solutions software, including MyDVD. And Windows XP is the operating system. Help!

(I had come across a thread about this problem, but can't find it now. The solution was to get a download via personal message. )

Do a search (top right) on drvmcdb.sys

If it's a Dell computer, then you need Dell technical support.

 

Otherwise, use Roxio or Sonic Tech support depending on the software you have and if the knowledgebase article doesn't help.

Dell was useless... I had hoped you could help as others with similar Dell computers were helped. I have a Dell 8400 w/ Win XP Pro, Sonic Record Now! 7.1.0. I've struggled with this for over a year now.

We're users like yourself. Did you check out the thread linked by jeanrosenfeld above, and send a private message (by clicking on the username) of the Roxio person (Kevin J) that was helping folks out?

Let us know if you do or don't get a response so we'll know if that's a workable solution.

do you use DLA?

 

Please forgive my lack of knowledge re DLA. I have a Dell 8400 w/ Win XP Pro, Sonic Record Now! 7.1.0. I've struggled with this DRVMCDB.sys error for over a year now.

johnr43,

 

ivanatrox wants to know if your sonic product includes the DLA (Drive Letter Access) program / application?

 

Below is a standalone version of the DLA (Drive Letter Access) program Roxio is selling separately.

This is the "bundled" prg that came w/ the Dell 8400 - and no, I didn't format the disc. Actually, the program generally works fine, it's on occasional reboots I get the BSOD and the DRVMCDB.sys error thing - and not necessarily after I've even used the Sonic Record Now! 7.1.0 prg. Maybe I should ask, "Since this (BSOD) goes away after I turn off the computer and reboot, is this something I should even worry about?" Is this the kind of deal that can lead to other "bad juju"? I guess the "Your system has recovered from a serious error" in the gray box on restart that sends cold chills down my spine. Sound so ominous. I know just enough to be dangerous and I've had to redo the whole thing a few times on various computers to know what fun that isn't.

Try going into Start>Control Panel> Add or Remove Programs and see if you see anything in there that says Sonic DLA.

If you don't use DLA and don't care to in the future, simply go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall Sonic DLA .
