Can't Create A Virtual Drive


joehempel

Question

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate, 64bit, and trying to mount a drive image.

 

When I try to get a new drive created it eventually will tell me that it can't create the drive.

I upgraded to 11 because 10 did the same thing, I was hoping that it would fix the problem, but no dice.

 

Has anyone else experienced this? I can create a drive with Daemon Tools Lite just fine, but really would like to use Roxio.

 

Here is my system:

 

Dell SXPS 1645

Intel i7 Quad Core 1.6Ghz

4GB Ram

500GB Hard Disk

1GB Video ATI 4670 HD Radeon

 

Thanks for any help!!

Did you have a virtual drive made by Roxio and then delete it? Did you do what the message said - reboot the computer. That is needed to get rid of all the "junk" from the previously made and deleted drive.

 

Try it next time.

 

No I did not have a drive created, and of course I tried after the reboot....still nothing.

 

Under storage controllers I have the Roxio SoftSCSI Host Adapter, I will try to remove that, reboot and try again.

If you show this "Roxio SoftSCSI Host Adapter" you have one or had one and something has gone bad! Right click, uninstall it and re-boot. Now see how it goes?

Post a screen shot of the error message.

 

I don't currently have a screen shot, I'm using a mounted drive with daemon tools right now....but this was kind of what the error said:

 

Request Timed Out, cannot create virtual device, please reboot your computer before trying to create another drive.

 

 

It's not exact, but that's what it said.....I'm trying to find a screen shot of the error on this forum, it's out here somewhere, but that's the exact error I get.
