Dvd Drive Issue Help Needed (Ty In Advance)



Hi all could really use some help over last few months have been driving myself insane over an internal cd dvd bit of hardware that is driving me to drink vast amounts of wine whilst I pull my hair out trying to fix it


Ok the problem started a few months ago where drive refused to burn discs would always get error and disc would be ejected (have tried -r & +r & -rw & +rw discs (makes no difference it hates them all)


It did have a problem with playing shop bought dvd's but after wandering the halls of many forums I managed to do the 'delete filters/ uninstall drive' restarted and after many clicks here and there hey presto it now plays shop bought & burnt discs


However my problem with burning discs continues so today I went out and bought a lovely jubberly external Samsung slim portable dvd writer (usb) On trying to open 'Roxio Easy CD & DVD burning' software (snazzy red box for windows 7) I encounter the message 'all your drives are set to disabled on this operating system in order for easy cd and dvd burning home you must either remove your drives or enable at least one' hmm I have tried the 'PX Engine installer' but sadly on restart the error still appears


I can see the drives on My Computer Internal drive plays dvd's cd's lovely... the external drive shows up ready to record to my hearts content.. but soon as I try and open roxio the dreaded all drives disabled message appears...


I am not a techie.. although I do know where the on off buttons are... :D


I am quite sure this question has been asked many times and I do apologise for asking it again but having tried to follow other peoples issues / threads I still can't resolve my own issue and get this PC burning lovely discs again


all help very much appreciated
