I just installed roxio easy media creator 10 to my computer today, and everything went perfectly smooth and i actually successfully burned 3 audio cd's using my external dvd rw drive that i have connected to my laptop (which was marked as "drive G" by both windows and roxio.
After i burned the 3rd cd, i attempted to burn another cd, but for some reason it froze up and i had to end the program. As soon as i started roxio back up, my "G" drive disappeared and it only recognized my regular cd drive thats on my laptop (drive "E"). My external dvd rw drive is recognized by windows, and i can find it in My Computer as well as device manager just fine.
Can someone please help me out here? I researched this a little and tried intalling the px-engine patch from a couple different web sites but that did nothing. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling but that did not work either. This whole thing is a joke and i am about to smash my computer because this is the most ridiculous thing ive ever encountered, and for it to just stop showing up is beyond me.
I am currently running windows 7 and my external dvd rw drive is an HP lightscribe 1040r if that helps anybody out. Please help!
