Windows 7: trouble with the dvd drive

25 Jun 2011   #11

windows 7 Pro 64 bit

Thanks guys for taking your time to answer.
Mr. Colbert: Revo uninstaller did not find any Movie Maker.
No Problem because it is disabled with Windows features.
This seemed to help with the DVD drive operation.
Still Movie Maker is a bad program and should be changed to do
a complete uninstall if so desired.

Seeliewight: Most likely it's some dumb thing I did.
I had to reinstall the entire puter after running it. That scared me off.
Backed up and installed Imagburn. It worked like a champ. Took a
little getting used to but I managed. Haven't the foggiest why I
had so much trouble a while back with it. Will now get rid of Infrarecoder
and Eraser. Both are questionable programs.

Hey folks, I have two hard drives in this laptop, one has windows on it and the other is a storage drive. When windows was installed I suppose I made the storage drive a fat32, which started causing me grief when I tried to move large files on to it. So I (in my infinite wisdom) installed a...
