For some strange reason, all of my DVD recording programs no longer detect a recording device. I can access the drive (Pioneer AO7), view files, play a DVD but cannot burn a disk. Premiere 1.5, Encore 1.5 and Nero Record Now Max 4.5 all state that they cannot find a recording device.
To solve the problem, I have tried the following things.
Update driver and firmware (did not help)
Remove hardware from Device Manager and let windows re-detect on boot up - did not solve the problem.
Remove the drive from the computer and swap it with an AO6 and it still doesn't recognize a recording device.
I cannot burn a CD from windows media player either.
