Question about Computers & Internet

Easy CD 5 that I installed to view Sony Mavica camera images seems to have made my CD/DVD drive inaccessible. Windows XP tells me that CD Recording Software will cause Windows to become unstable and so prevented the devices from loading. This despite my thorough uninstall of the initially offensive program. How can I make my drive work again?

Do you have a restore point set prior to the offensive software installation? Try going there. I know that Uninstall does not always find everything it should so I have had to delete things manually sometimes. The hard part is finding this stuff to delete. Also check the drivers. Maybe this software installed its own drivers.

Need drivers for Mavica MVC-CD400 digital camera. My idiot ex threw away the disc when our old XP recognized it way back when. I have a new Windows 7 PC and I can't connect my camera. Can you help?


As your camera records direct to CD you clearly don't have the option to use an external card reader, and as the recording is in a proprietary format few CD drives will read the information.

You can download the software for your model for free from here. Don't expect Win7 drivers though as the model has long been discontinued and is unsupported by Sony, but you can try running Win7 in compatibility mode.

I hope that you have found my reply to be relevant and useful; if so, please take a moment to rate my answer.

Cd drive on laptop not recognised by OS


If CD /DVD drive is not listed, perform a full scan with your antivirus software to check for and remove viruses. Viruses can sometimes prevent Windows from recognizing the drive.

Yours is a CD recording type. Shouldn't you just load the CD from the camera to the computer? Then cut and paste to a folder on your computer. Or copy and paste. Ed

Computer doesn't recognise memory stick


well you could check if your media drive is compatible with memory stick duo/pro duo or update the drivers for it . or try something like going into its properties and click the tab called recording and select enable cd recording on this drive (if that renders your dvd drive inaccessible you can change the other drive(inaccessible drive) to that setting).

Disc Error


I had a similar problem, I was able to view the images on the camera but could not download them to my computer. I have an external cd drive, HP CD writer plus. This drive does not require me to finalize my CDs in order to download my pictures. With the damaged CD, I used a piece of software called BADCOPY to recovery the files(pictures) on the CD. I was able to recover all but one picture from the damaged CD. (I tried using the cd drive on my pc and the recovery software did not find anything, I had to use the external drive)
