Roxio Not Detecting Cd & Dvd Drives

Question

I'm have windows XP with service pack 3 and Roxio Creator LE - Dell Edition & Easy Media Creator 10 Suite will not detect CD drive or DVD drive. I was having a problem with the drives not being detected when I click on the My Computer Icon but that has been solved because there was a problem with the registry. Any ideas on why Roxio isn't detecting the drives? Roxio Creator came installed with my computer so I don't have a CD to reinstall it and I haven't been able to find the CD for Easy Media Creator because I recently moved. Thanks!

Dell would be the place to go to get your CD to reinstall Roxio and for support. Dell offers its own software patches. If your AV product has a registry cleaner then it needs to be told to ignore Roxio and Sonic entries.

 

You might want to try this patch from this site but check with Dell first.

I tried that link and the software is now detecting both drives. I haven't tried to burn any discs but when I do I'll post about what happens. Thank you!
