Lost Cd/dvd Access After Reinstall Ver 7.5 And Patch

Question

I just removed ver 8.0 of Roxio due to its lack of compressing dual layer DVD to single layer. After removal and reinstall of ver 7.5 and the 7.5 patch, I lost access to both CD/DVD drives. The fix is per MS Knowledge base article 314060 and requires a simple registry edit:

I am starting a new thread with this fix, as I spent 4 hrs of various forum fixes including roxiozap and windows config utility and Sonic engine updates before finding this EASY fix. This knowledge base article really works, so I am hoping this new thread saves someone else the aggravation. I suspect many will be trashing ver 8.0!!

 

Note that it fixed it after reinstall of 7.5. When I then installed the software update for 7.5-I again lost access to the CDROM/DVD. I again applied the MS Knowledge article and it fixed it again. Apparently the patch alos adds the registry entries that need to be deleted.

This is a common occurrence that started after XP came out…

 

It can occur whenever any burning software is installed or removed.

 

Thanks for posting.
