Reinstalling Dla On A Dell Laptop

Question

Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop with WinXP Media Center Edition 2005. When I bought it 5 years ago it came with DLA which enabled me to use drag-and-drop to burn CDs and DVDs.

 

Recently, the computer was damaged, which required me to reinstall WinXP and all the drivers. Since my laptop did not come with a reinstall CD, I had to use one from a friend, who also has a Dell with the same version of WinXP. I also reinstalled all the drivers from her drivers CD and the updates from Dell's website. I also ran all MS Windows updates on the OS to bring it up-to-date to WinXP SP3.

 

However, the CD/DVD drive now no longer support DLA. I would very much like to reinstall this feature which I found to be very convenient.

 

Dell lists the drive on the original configuration shipping list as: DVD+/-RW..., 8X, IDE (INTEGRATED DRIVE ELECTRONICS) ..., NEC

The computer's Device Manager currently lists it as _NEC DVD+-RQ ND-6650A, and that it is working properly.

 

Is there a way to reinstall or reactivate this software/feature, which came with my computer but which I lost in the OS reinstallation?

 

Thank you,

Amalia

It came from Dell and is a OEM product, you would have to talk to them...

 

A new retail version listed here..

 

DLA is now called Roxio Burn. Downloading and installing Roxio Burn will resolve DLA incompatibility issues with Internet Explorer 8.

Thanks but unfortunately the laptop is out of warranty and Dell won't even talk to me :)

Any other suggestions? Or am I out of luck and have to re-purchase (what's the Roxio equivalent?) or find some other software?

 

Thanks again!

 

Did you click the blue text (link) in my first post?:unsure:

Hello Amalia,

 

Sorry I wasn't here earlier, I'm in a different time zone.

 

Please read this pinned topic written by 'John at Roxio' in the EMC 9, Vista forum.

 

Down at the bottom of the post you will see a paragraph addressed to Dell customers. There is a link there which says "Click here for the DLA patch.

 

Click on John's link, and you will download d2d3290.exe from Roxio. Run that patch and it will reinstall DLA 32-bit version 9 for you.

 

Regards,

Brendon

Hi,

 

You are absolutely right and I did but all the stuff about Vista made me think it was not relevant for me situation. So just a case of my being kinda new to this and not very technical.

 

Thank you for your efforts though. It's so nice how total strangers help you like this, and I really appreciate it.

All the best,

 

Amalia
