No supported drives?!?!?

Recommended Posts

I had a copy of EZ CD Creator 5, that worked fine, & recently bought Easy CD & DVD, which now tells me I have no supported drives!

My drive is a SONY DVD RW DW-D26A, which worked quite well with version 5.

I have downloaded all the available updates, but it still doesn't work.

Any suggestions?

Okay, here is what you need to do. Completely uninstall version 6 and reinstall without installing the "Drag to disc" part. That means that you need to control/tell it what is installed and not just letting it install everything automatically. It worked for me, so maybe it'll work for you.

 

Hope this helps!

Actually, I removed it & went back to version 5.

I also saw that my drive, a SONY DW-D26A, isn't on the list of supported drives!

How come it was supported in version 5?

V.6 has the ability to query the drive for newer drives, which ECDC 5 didn't have.

 

To go from one Version to another, you need to get out all the bits&pieces, which is what Roxizap was developed for - the URL is in the FREQUENT ANSWERS post pinned to the top of the board which you apparently overlooked. You need to do an add/remove, then roxizap, and then you can reinstall or install a different Version.

 

That said, I had V.6 on the computer briefly between ECDC 4 and ECDC 5 - seemed to me its purpose in life was to put the CD libraray on the Hard Drive, and with a 3.7GB HD, I wasn't tempted.

Your drive was first supported by the 5.3.5.10 "V" driveupdate patch, which was issued after version 6 came on the market.

 

The published list of supported drives isn't complete or accurate.
