Question about Mad Dog Multimedia (MD16XDVD9) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

CD dirve and DVR burner not working!!!

Device manager on XP shows my CD and DVD drive not working properly (errror 22). I looked up error and says to uninstall and install drives again and I still have no luck following the directions. I went to Comp USA and bought a new internal DVD player and tried it w/ no luck. Same error as before. Also I tried a external drive and I am geting the same error. A friend suggested the power supply might be the problem coming in from mother board to drives. Any one have any other suggestions or think that could be it before I buy any other parts. Thnanks in advance. Peaace

Try a fresh install of windows, if this is the only cd/dvd drive and it's replacing the previous one look at the power requirement on the drives chances are they're gonna be the same but they might not be, so there is a chance that it's not the power supply, also check the jumper settings on the drive and make sure its set properly, do not use cable select, improper jumper settings and cable select can cause loss of functionallity in a device especially if its an ide/eide device, sometimes it will even cause the computer to not post or too post extremely slowly.

How to fix non working cd/dvd, shows in device manager with error code..

Gud morning, I my dvd desappered. I cant load any cd. the iocon is not showning. how do i rectify this. I am using HP Pavillion dv6700. my dvd device is "pioneer dvd rw dvr-k17b ata device". Please i need...

ok first of all has anything vhanged, there is a known problem when upgrading XP to vista, where te cdrom.sys rivers arent installed. this is fixable but tedious, if it just simply dissapeared without change, go to device manager:

XP: START> RIGHT click my computer > click "properties" > "Hardware" tab > click the "device manager" button.
VISTA: START> RIGHT click my computer > click "properties" > on the left click "device manager"

under DVD/CD-ROM drvices, you should see your dvd drive, now the field is probably expanded already and it most probably has a yellow exclamation mark next to the device, or it has a large yellow question mark. this means the driver for the vd rive has either failed or is not working properly.

quick fix for this is to simply RIGHT click on the device, click uninstall, confirm, and once un-installed, re-start the machine. apon restart windows should automatically detect the dvd drive as a new device and install it.

if there is simply no device listed under DVD/CD-ROM devices, or the catergory isnt there, windows isnt detecting it at all, which commonly means the dvd drive itself has failed, (the fact it may be powered and opens/closes is irrelevant). but before throwing it away, try changing the IDE/SATA cable. if the uninstall/re-install doesnt work, you may need to re-install it from a winows disk, which is a little tricky. but can be done. let me know if it doesnt work and i will pace you through it.

1) uninstall your dvr from device manager
2) write REGEDIT at RUN
3) look for UPPERFILTER using search in the edit menu. After you have found it, delete this registry
4) repeat the same for LOWERFILTER
5) Go to the device manager, scan for hardware changes. Win Vista will now successfully install your DVR

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?
