Mad Dog Driver

I recently had my computer crash and now have everything fixed. But when I hooked up my Mad Dog Model ME-325X and when I put a disk in it won't read it. But if I do a browse It shows what has been inserted. It now will not show as a burner for Nero. I tried to find updated drivers but there seems to be something wrong with mdmm.com website. Does anyone have any suggestions of what I can do about this. Thanks

I have a Mad dog case for my old hard drive that I have hooked to my new computer. The old drive still has operating system on it. It seems to be conflicting with current computers system. It used to work...


If you just want to use old drive for data, here is a way to get rid of old OS. Put your CD for the OS (any will do, but XP works best for me.) Make sure you have CD as a boot drive. When it says "push any key to boot from CD" hit the space bar. Let it go through the motions and when it finally is ready, pick install Windows. It will ask you to pick a partition, and go to Mad dog hard drive. Click on remove partition, and when this is done, eject CD and shut down computer. You can now use FDISK to create partition and format it. Windows will not let you delete an operating system, but you can fool it into letting you this way. Hope this helps!

First do windows update until everything is fully updated, pay careful attention to any hardware update that is needed in the left column and if that does not help go double click on MY COMPUTER select the drive( D) then right click, go to PROPERTIES then RECORDING set or change your defaults.
Hope this helps.

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.

Mad Dog USB DVD-RW not recognized


The firmware updates and drivers won't help you. You can try turning it off, disconnecting it from your PC, then turning off your PC, turning on the burner and then turning your PC back on and hope that it's recognized. The chances are slim as this is a known issue with Mad Dog external USB DVDRW's and you need to send it in for repair if it's under warranty or put it on eBay as broken (or throw it out) otherwise and get a new one. I have a Mad Dog external DVD-RW and ran into the same exact issue, for a while it was working on and off as long as I didn't turn the burner off while my PC was on but for a while now it's just recognized by the PC as mass storage device rather than the DVDRW that it is and when you reach that point the aforementioned two choices (repair or throwing it out\putting it on ebay) are the only ones you have.

Mad dog dvd burner


I think ya have to make sure that you have the correct "Driver" installed. when ya plug it in.. it should make a noise and then ask for drivers OR install it's own.. also try another USB port.. and OR Uninstall the driver, Device Manager and reinstall again.
