[QUOTE=Dodgey Wombat;826566]Hi There! I have an annoying problem with virtual CD/DVD Devices.
A couple of months ago I tried out several burning programs (Alcohol 120, Clone CD and Blindwrite). I have Softdisc/Daemon Tools as well but wish to keep as is definitely the best.
The problem is that after uninstaling the main programs I am left with 3 virtual drives that i dont want or need.
Have tried to remove from device manager but come back after reboot (turned off the softdisc one first). Removed both the drives and the scsi devices and even tried to delete in registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DEVICEMAP\Scsi)
and still persists in coming back.
The only other alternative is to re-install all the apps and turn off the virtual device before un-installing again. But as I stupidly decided that “she’ll be right” when un-installed, i left them. But now as my machine gets more and more apps on it I am trying to “clean up” for faster operation (system, incedently, is a pathetic Celeron 500 with 256 Meg RAM :Z . 120 Gig drive though). And I nearly always change the installation directory so if i don’t install to same directories as before it might cause more headaches
To cut to the chase is there ANY way to remove without the hassel of re-insalling the apps?
Any ideas on the matter would be much appreciated
IT KEPT HAPPENING TO ME TO.
WHEN YOU GO INTO DEVICE MANAGER AND UNINSTALL THE VIRTUAL DEVICE DO YOU THEN GO TO STORAGE CONTROLLERS (ALSO IN DEVICE MANAGER) AND UNINSTALL THE VIRTUAL DRIVER?
IT WORKED FOR ME.
HOPE THIS HELPS. IM FAIRLY NEW TO ALL THIS BUT IT DEFINATELY WORKED FOR ME.
