Question

Not sure if this the right place to post this ...

 

My HP dvd635 writer stopped burning all of a sudden. Using Nero 6 (now 7).

For some reason pxhelp20.sys driver also exists (i didnt install sonic or roxio etc - only nero, itunes) which may be the one thats causing failed burns.

Later I got a Sony USB DVD external writer and that works. Even that driver details has pxhelp20.sys. So it possible that pxhelp20.sys is causing something to fail on the IDE drive ?

If you are running in XP and have never installed Roxio or Sonic programs you are unlikely to have the real Pxhelp20.sys file on your system.

 

The real Pxhelp20.sys is part of the Sonic PX burning Engine. It has been in Roxio programs ever since Sonic ate Roxio. It wasn't in versions up to and including 6, but I've tracked it in every version 7.5 and up, including Copy & Convert 3, and the Red Box cut-down Easy CD and DVD Burning. I don't have 7.0 installed, so I haven't been able to check there yet.

 

I just installed Nero 6 in a clean XP, and it doesn't install the PX engine. I don't know about iTunes, but if you have that installed you will likely have more viruses in your system that the fleas of one thousand camels.

 

What made you look for Pxhelp20.sys, or what brought it to your notice? The PX Engine has a number of other px*.sys and px*.dll files, so if they're in your system32 folder it would suggest that the PX engine was installed by something. If this one file is there by itself I'd be looking at it with extreme prejudice.
