I have three computers - main, backup, and emergency. Main computer is multi-booting and is currently running under XP, and backup and emergency computers are both running XP also.
Opti Drive Control (V1.70) has been installed in all three computers.
ODC was working OK in all three computers initially, but I now get “No drives found” error message on my backup computer every time I try to start/run ODC.
It is suspected that the problem started after my backup computer started to shutdown by itself into standby/sleep mode yesterday when running a new optical drive (GGW-H20L). Suspect a problem with the power cable, SATA data cable, or the SATA port on the motherboard which caused the unexpected shutdowns.
This sudden shutdown to standby/sleep mode may have corrupted some files, including ODC (registration) files?
I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled ODC several times, and I’ve run a registry cleaner, and I’ve also reset the BIOS, but ODC still continues to give the “No drives found” error message when starting it. Then it shuts down after clicking on the OK button on the error message!
BIOS and Windows detect and run all (three) optical drives, so there must be some issue with ODC files somewhere(?)
Any ideas about getting ODC to run again on my backup computer?
