My old CD/DVD drive died. I bought a brand new Samsung CD/DVD drive. It works fine. First time I’ve run Wavelab Elements 8 it cannot see the drive. I try to burn a previously saved montage and it just says NO DEVICE. I just updated to build 8.0.3 but no difference.
Running Win 7 Pro x64
Device manager reports the drive as: TSST corp CDDVDW SH-224BB. Driver up to date. This device is working properly.
What do I need to do??
Try updating to the latest driver , then reboot:
Hi - Gear doesn’t seem to have anything to do with Samsung. It’s a Samsung drive. Windows reports the drivers are up to date for the optical drive. The drive works fine - I can read and write to it with other software.
It is just Wavelab that will not recognise the drive.
I remember years ago with old Wavelab something about ASAPI filters with Win 2k/XP but I can’t find anything recent about this issue.
I just tried installing GEAR anyway. On restart my system failed to boot properly. Second attempt I got to desktop, checked Wavelab but still NO DEVICE. Now restoring system pre GEAR.
Thanks for your suggestion though.
Any other ideas?
I have no wtried uninstalling Wavelab completely and reinstalling it, but still it cannot see the drive.
I have gone to the TSST website and checked I have the latest firmware for the drive, and I do.
I am guessing it is some kind of registry problem. But I don’t know what to do about it.
I have submitted a support ticket but I have not heard anything and I really need to get some masters burned from montages.
Any further suggestions gratefully received…
