A suitable drive was not detected

“cwebjones” here as a Newbie. I have been working with computers for about 30 years now and enjoy getting on the web for just about everything from the lottery to sports and business. I also burn disk for record keeping, songs and photos. I use Sonic “Record Now”, version 7.10, with my windows XP2 Toshiba. I have a problem with my software finding a suitable drive. The windows message reads as below:

“A suitable drive was not detected. Please cancel and save this project, attach a suitable drive, attach a drive, then click for drives above.”

Even though I have worked with computers for many years, I have no idea how to go about attaching a suitable drive. I believe that a hardware setting may be causing this problem. Recently I have had problems with my laptop and the “D” drive simply isn’t getting read by Record Now software. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks…cwebjones

Did the software come with the OS/computer? Or is it an OEM version?
