Drive Letter Access Update


shanbaum

Question

It appears that an update to DLA was automatically installed on my computer, a Dell M170, on May 31. I had not rebooted my computer since then, until today. The file tfnifs.sys caused a blue screen during the boot process. Booting in safe mode, I renamed the folder WINDOWS\System32\drivers\DLA, and was able to boot normally.

 

(BTW, there doesn't appear to be a forum for DLA, which is why I posted here).

Since you're obviously running Vista, I've moved this to the Vista area.

If you don't use Drag to Disk, you can uninstall it and see if that helps but it appears you've fixed the problem already.

Sorry, but I'm not using Vista on the computer in question - I'm using XP Pro. I'm aware of the problem with Vista, because I have that on another system.

 

I have indeed solved the problem myself, by disabling the product.

 

BTW, I was incorrect about the update date. I don't know it (though it was in the last few days; I saw it). The files in folder DLA are variously dated 5/31/2005 and 8/8/2006.

Thanks for the info. I was not aware of this problem in XP but now wonder if your version was an OEM version of EMC or did you update later. Really doesn't matter if you're up and running and thanks for clearing things up.

It came with the computer originally along with Sonic Record Now, but I have since installed Easy Media Creator 9.
