You may have tried this already, but here is another possibility. If you have several drives, digital cameras, etc. that you connect to the computer your machine may be trying to use a drive letter that has already been assigned to another device.

Heres how to check:

right click on My Computer and select "Manage"
under "Storage" you will find "Disk Management"
Locate your mad dog Drive and right click
you want to "Change drive letter and paths"
select a new drive letter
close all windows
a reboot may be necessary

Give it a try and I hope this helps. I had a similar problem when I connected mine to my laptop.

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?????

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.

SOURCE: Mad Dog USB DVD-RW not recognized

I have had a similar problem to this one in that when I turn the device on if my computer is already turned on, it does not show up in the list of available storage devices.

I discovered the cause of the problem.

Whenever I would try to use the DVD-RW/DVD-ROM, I also had another external storage device connected, being my mp3 player. I disconnected the mp3 player, left the DVD drive turned on, rebooted my system, and when I went into "My Computer", it showed the DVD drive connected, with the letter I had assigned it ("D", since the CD-ROM and CD-RW drives were assigned the letters "H" and "I", respectively. Don't ask how. I have no fargin' idea.). I decided to test something out. I put in a DVD, watched a few minutes of it, took it out, then turned the device off. I reconnected my mp3 player, then turned the DVD drive back on. I opened up "My Computer", and after it took a minute to locate all drives, it found the mp3 player, but not the DVD drive. I unplugged the mp3, rebooted the system, and the DVD showed back up.

In short, if you have another external storage device connected to your system, like an mp3 player, external hard drive, memory card/stick reader, digital camera, etc., disconnect that device first, then turn on the external DVD drive. Double-click on "My Computer" (if you are using Windows), and it should show up. If not, reboot your system and then open up "My Computer". It should be listed then.

I have Mad Dog MD-16xDVD9-EXT. It says it can burn double layer dvd at 4X speed. I have dvds at 8X speed. How to burn at 8X speed with the existing burner? Need advice. Thanks


The bad news is most likely you will not be able to. If the specification for the device is a max 4x speed it most likely won't even be able to use the 8X media you have. You have to match the media to the device. All the specification data I find on the device indicates it writes double layer disk at max speed of 4X. It will write single layer disk at 8X.

Mad Dog MD-16xDVD9A4


Do you have Windows XP? If so XP does not burn DVD's on its own it requires third party software.
A simple Google search will find free software for you.
I personaly like burn4free it can be found here.

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.
