My "No Compatible Drives Found" fix...

When I installed CDBurnerXP to my system it could not find any compatible drives. The system was rebooted after the install as well. But then I noticed a funny thing: there were NO cd-drives in My Computer!.. When I examined the drives in the Device Manager they showed up as "drivers loaded but no hardware found".

So I deleted BOTH drives from the device manager and then scanned for hardware changes. The device manager then found both drives and automatically set them up for the system.

I went back to CDBurnerXP and this time it was able to find both of my drives.

Because my drives were working before I installed CDBurnerXP, I think that the drives disappering was somehow caused by CDBxp upon install. Anyhow, the next step is to see how well it actually burns to disc...

I had same prob but all i did was go to device manager and right click on my drive and scan for hardware changes and it then worked all ok.

Thanks for the idea but this solution did NOT work for me - I am using a Sony CDRW CRX215E5 with the 'no compatible drives found' error.

It feels like there's some kind of whitelist for drives so I went looking around for one - I saw NCTWMAProfiles.prx which seems to be for audio/video formats but it doesn't appear to have anything to do with the basic hardware definition

Does anyone know how to get CDXPPro to play nicely via a hack or emulation - maybe to the PRX or similar?
