Sonic DigitalMedia LE v7 - "No Drive Detected"

  • Sonic DigitalMedia LE v7 was pre-installed by Dell when I purchased my Inspiron 9300 from Dell, and it now shows "No Drive Detected". My DVD Re-Writer is Sony DVD+-RW DW-D56A, also pre-installed when I purchased my laptop from Dell.
    I've tried the downloads R100552, R104295, R107621a & R142470 with no success, and I've tried re-installing Sonic and rebooting afterwards, still with no success (should these downloads be run in a specific order??).
    Hopefully, someone on this board will know what to try next, but as it's been going on for nearly 6 months I'm really getting desperate to get this software working properly.
  • is the drive seen in my computer and are there any exclaimation marks/error messages in device manager?
  • Yup .... Drive is seen in My Computer, and there are no exclamation marks against the Drive or any other component in Device Manager.
  • I'm just guessing that you didn't first install sonic from cd as afaik the downloads on the dell site just update the original cd install.
  • Try this

  • What might that patch be?
  • Have you already tried deleting lower/upper filters in the registry? Try to run this:
    Requires a reboot. Fixed most of computers having this kind of issue.
