Windows 7: HELP! DVD Drive undetected after MagicISO

Missing DVD Drive after Magic Iso install

Magic Iso and some other similar applications will take over the DVD drive, they want to act as an all encompassing virtual DVD drive. Which in my opinion sucks badly.

So when I need to use Magic ISO I install it, do what I need and remove it.

To get your DVD drive back you can go to your system manufacturer, like Dell or HP and download the drivers for it again. The system will act like it is non existent, but if you run the drivers and do a hardware scan in most cases it will pick back up and start working again.

Why they do this by design is anyone's guess, but since they are free, they probably put some disclaimer in the small print.

Hope this helps, I've had to "recover" my drives a few times through out the years.

Improper CD name after burning through MagicISO
I made an image file using MagicISO and renamed it to what I wanted the CD to be called. Then I burned that image file using Magic onto a blank CD-RW. When I pop the disc in a computer the name of the CD is a bunch of random numbers. How do I change the name of the CD?

Personally I've tried MagicISO x64 on Windows 7 Beta x64 and the OS starts failing until I can't open anything or even startup. But I've read that some people have been able to get it to work? Any help or any other programs people might suggest?
