You could disable ActiveX programs completely. But when you do so, you cut off access to the good along with the bad.
Try this link for help with ActiveX issue

Hi leigh_Hall86,

It seems that you're running a 32 bit version of the software on a 64 bit operating system. Or the driver is not longer supported by modern Operating systems. To fix this issue try finding and installing the right driver.

Hope this helped

My NEC ND-3530A DVD drive causes my Dimension 3000 to go to the dreaded blue screen and dump. I have changed discs, downloaded updates, ran check disc, did a virus scan, everything that Microsoft...

This could be a problem with the burner, but it could also be a driver conflict of some kind, or a software issue. What OS are you using, xp?
What software are you using to burn with? (Try using this instead:
Try disabling the automatic restart so you can read the blue screen stop code and report it back here. (Go to control panel>system>advanced>startup & recovery and uncheck the automatic restart. You will have to manually shut down the system after you get the stop error code.) This page will help decipher the error code you get back.
Possible MS help articles here and here. (You may need to reinstall the drivers.)

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Hi, My PC shows CD Drive as DVD R, but but it does not burn any, either in windows or by NERO. It says 'no device found' in NERO. Please help.

this problem may be due to the software incompatibilty.
pls use proper compatible software that come with dvd r to write the cd or dvd.

I have a similar kind of problem...


Thanks for coming to FixYa, The problem you have is either a well documented software problem or a failing drive.

Click the below link, then scroll down and click the "Fix It" button. Follow the onscreen instructions, restart when it's done and see if your drive re-appears. If it does, you're done, if it doesn't work then your drive is most likely failed and you should replace it.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Download movies from explorer 8300 hdc dvr to computer to burn

Not gonna happen. SA uses a proprietary file system. The USB is only designed for a keyboard or mouse when in a special diagnostics mode. The best you can do is use an eSata drive to the port on the back. IF you have the Mystro software on the box (most do) it won't even allow you to move programs to the storage drive until the box's drive is mostly full. Even then, I'm not sure that it gives you the option to choose what you want to offload.
You are best off buying a DVD burner (stand alone unit) or output the video to your PC. and re-encoding it to the file you want. Alternately, wait for the Series 4 TiVo with tru2way.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

CD-RW drive won't open

stick a straight paperclip into the tiny hole in front a few times. This manually rotates the gears and will eject the cd tray.
If it does not still come out because of the jammed CD - you may need to use force!!

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

How can i fix

you need to check the Master slave settings of this device, you can only have 1x master & 1x slave on an IDE channel, if you set to the wrong one then the devices will conflict, if you are replacing a drive check what setting it had and replicate the same setting on the replacement CD drive. the master slave setting pins are usually next to the 40pin IDE connector on the back of the drive. hope this helps :D
