Drive not recognised

I tried to burn DVDs with Roxio Easy CD creator V.5.3.4.21 SP8
but it doesnt recognise or cannot find a DVD drive installed eventhough Nero does, as do all other software. I have an external LG DVD drive.
I know it’s pretty old, but it does have DataDVD project to burn DVDs. Thus,
what do I do?

Try unistalling this drives driver in the Device Manager, then restart your computer. Windows will reinstall it. Then try to use your software again.
