  ripvan 20:28 22 Nov 2004

Have put adptec roxio4.02 cd creator on my xp system in error.It is not for XP so it has disabled all my drives until drivers upgraded!Roxio don't support this version anymore but I can buy version7 for $70!!Don't want it as I have nero.HAve removed the prog under uninstall etc .Restore says I havn't got anything to restore even though I can pick dates back the 15/11.Removing/disabling cd's under hardware doesn't help.All Ideas welcome please

When a Roxio update messed up my drives I had to not only remove them from the hardware list but also disconnect the cables, go through a complete powerup/shutdown and then reconnect them.

Hi, not sure if this would work, but - I would disconnect ide & power cables from drives, then restart computer. Then shut-down as normal, refit all cables and restart computer again; in theory computer should then 'find' new hardware and install drivers for same. I think!! Good luck.
