No Drive Detected



I am using sonic digital media LE v7 and when I attempt to copy data to a disk, no drive is detected. Windows does recognize that the drive is there and I can insert data discs and view data. What do I need to do to get the program to recognize the drive.


Thanks for any suggestions

With no info on the optical drive or the Operating System or which program within the suite or what you are trying to do, it could be any of a number of things.


  • It could be you are trying to burn to a DVD and don't have a DVD burner - only a DVD-ROM or a Combo drive (reads/writes CDs, reads DVDs).
  • It could be you are trying to use one of the reliable programs in the suite and have formatted the disc so that it only works with DLA.
  • It could be you are trying to use DLA (like all Packet-Writing programs, NOT a reliable long-term method) and haven't formatted the disc.
  • It could be you are trying to burn a CD and only have a CD-ROM (READ-ONLY) drive.
  • It could be you have Vista and it has formatted the disc for it's own use.
  • You haven't said if you can write to a disc from the Operating System if it is WinXp or Vista.

A more specific answer can be given IF there is more to go on.

You might want to try the PXengine update.




I didn't want to suggest that because the KB article says " Easy Media Creator 7.5 and higher". A Sonic 7 Oem product could of used a earlier version like pxengine3_00_58a.


I would try, uninstalling the IDE Controller the drive is on, reboot and have windows reinstall the device and drivers.
