No DVD Recorder Found

I have the Optiarc dvd ad-7200s ATA Device. I was using Easy DVD Creator from Ether Software until all of a sudden it told me that “No DVD Recorder Found” I’ve been searching for a solution, and at this point I’m at my wits end.
Please help

Does the drive show up in My Computer? Can you use it with other programs? In other words, is the drive still functional, or is this a problem within your software?

If the hardware is still working properly with other programs, like playing back dvds, or burning data to a disk, then work on the software side of the equation. Uninstall Easy DVD Creator then reinstall the program. If the program has an installation key, make sure to save that somewhere before uninstalling.
