Perhaps you should reinstall the Sonic stuff, in case it was affected since the virus cleanup. If the OS had some of its components quarantined from virus contamination, you are probably stuck reinstalling the OS...though of course you can search the web (and not least Microsoft.com if that's the sort of OS you use) for healing 'media detection' issues (w.r.t. your particular OS.)
Try uninstalling Roxio and the Sonic drives and run Fixit. Then reboot and install Roxio first then the Sonic driver.
If this doesn't work uninstall again as previously, install Roxio and check the CD/DVD if necessary run Fixit then install Sonic driver.
Have you try sonic? That come with the Hp Compac pc softwares. Find the original two cd that comes with the pc, and look for the restore and drivers cd. or try to system restore the pc where you think the last time you burn cd on you pc.
Reinstall Sonic MyDVD from the Application Recovery. A lot of HP computers have done this or produced that constant pop up.
If that doesn't work, go to:
Start > Run and type in msconfig in the box.
Then click the Startup tab and uncheck the box beside DMA (digital media archive)
Click Apply then Close. Reboot when prompted and you shouldn't get that annoying pop up any longer.
If you don't even use the Sonic MyDvD program on the computer, just uninstall Sonic completely from Add/Remove.
Ok try this DO NOT insert the media until you have completed ya assembly... then tell it to "Burn" it will then ask for the media.. at this point insert ya CD... it should be "Detected" and ya Burn should proceed.I have had this work for me before.
Also try Alcohol 120% thats a great Burner. As well as CopytoDVD...
I am asuming your using XP, this happened to me a few years ago, i searched google and found a forum that had instructions on editing a registry key to fix the problem but i wasn't able to see the drives in the device manager at all, so check that first and make sure they are there and try reinstalling the device drivers,using windows update or manually search for newest version of the drivers, if all that fails try reinstalling the applications your having issues with, if that fails you can try getting another application to replace the ones that aren't working, try alcohol 120% or Nero, those are about the best out especially a120 however it would require a purchase.
