Cd/Dvd writer issues

  Madscot_uk 14:25 05 Jan 2006

Working with a colleagues Pc, he recently uninstalled the cd/dvd software that came packaged with the pc and installed Nero. On installation Nero will not recognise the drive nor will windows built in cd writing software, as the previous software was pre installed, he doesn't have the cd, nor remember the exact name of the software. Checking in device manager shows all to be well with the drive and the drivers...any suggestions to get it writing again?

TRy cleaning the registry, old software may have left something in there blocking Nero.

Registry cleaner :-
Regseeker click here
TweakNow RegCleaner 1.3.2 click here
Easycleaner click here ( Use with care, It advises you to back up the registry first, this is a good idea as it cleans rather aggressively. )
