Question about installing Roxio Creator 8.2 XE with Mad Dog drive

I recently purchased an external Mad Dog MegaStor 18x Triple Format Drive with the software CD that contained Roxio Creator 8.2 XE. And I have some concerns about the installation. I have worked with computers for many years and I’m not a new when it comes to installing software. But this one was different. The only reason I say that is because my security/virus checking software was freaking out like never before. I am running Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0 under Windows XP. The warning messages seemed unusual and excessive.
It isn’t unusual for the security software to give me a heads-up when a program write to the registry. It is usually a blue-bordered pop-up window. But in addition to that, there were frequent "squeals" accompanied by red-bordered windows with ominous messages like:
1. Process is trying to install driver and gain full access to operating system. Security control will not be available anymore.
2. Process attempting to gain full access to the system by installing a driver. Writing system registry values from file C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\DLARTL_N.sys.
3. Process attempting to gain full access to the system by installing a driver. Writing system registry values from file C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\DRVNDDM.sys.
4. Suspicious driver installation, Running process (PID:2604): c:\Program Files\Roxio\DLA\dlauninw.exe
5. Running hidden installation into system:
Program module installed and registering in registry key \REGISTRY\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run with value DLA without user interaction. This activity is similar to Trojan Downloader/Dropper.

The warning that bothered me the most was the, "security control will not be available anymore." Excuse me? I’m installing multimedia software and I have to give up security control? I don’t get it. Of course I understand that I need to install drivers like I’ve done dozens of times but I’ve never seen messages like this before. Is this normal for this type of software?

The CD is "dirty". Trust Kaspersky and do not try to use it. Possibly Mad Dog is not aware of the problem. I have encountered this problem before with other seller-supplied software.

SOURCE: MacBook and Mad Dog Multimedia Compatible?

I have been using my Mad Dog External CD/DVD burner for serveral years now on both Mac & PC. However, I do have intermittant issues when the computer recognizes the Mad Dog but my software does not (Toast). There is no driver for Mac as far as I know. I called Mad Dog one time and they rudely suggested that Mac does not need a driver and that I should know that. No help at all!!! I will try the suggestion for PCs to turn everything off, turn on the Mad Dog, then boot my computer and see if that works. Does anyone else use a Mac and have more solutions?????

SOURCE: I have the Mad Dog

Sorry to say, no. According to NVIDIA this is a legacy product (older model). The most current drivers offered by nvidia are for windows XP back in 2006. You can check for yourself here:

Your product type is "LEGACY"

Try a newer card and look it up at the manufacturers website. I love nvidia by the way ;)

Mad Dog External DVD Writer


I don't know if I can be of any help here, but I purchased my Mad Dog Multimedia MEGASTOR DVD+/-RW burner a few years ago for my PoweSpec with XP Home Edition. I recently bought a new computer installed with Windows Vista Home Premium (which yes, I actually do love) and my external Mad Dog works perfectly, I didn't even have to update any drivers, it recognizes the drive everytime I plug it in (via USB). I don't need it anymore, but it's actually a better burner than the one that came with my system, which I bought new in March, although it's now discontinued. Do you have the disk for it? If so, have you tried running the disk again? What OS and processor do you have? In the event that it might be a matter of obtaining the proper driver for it to work for you, I also am a member of a great and extremely reliable site for free driver downloads. Free membership is limited to a few downloads within a certain period of time,and then you have to wait 24 hours, but other than that there is no limit so that's what I do. Just for the record, there was a period where my old XP was out of commission and I had to resort to my very old HP Pavillion that was about 10 years old, came with Windows 98SE(when that OS was brand new) and all I needed to do to make Win98 recognize the drive was download a driver and it worked just fine. LOL, that has a processor that runs at 600 megahertz, so you can imagine if my Mad Dog worked on systems like that, XP Home and now Vista Home Premium without a hitch, I was quite impressed with their products.

MacBook and Mad Dog Multimedia Compatible?


According to http://www.mdmm.com/spec.php?productid=160 (check the requirements tab, note that it doesn't work on firefox due to bad coding), it only supports Windows 2000 and Windows XP (even though it doesn't say so, it's likely it's also supported by Windows 98 and Vista) but unless someone made drivers for mac os x, it doesn't look like it'll work.
