The title is "slightly" misleading, but it is connnected. Right, I downloaded a Virtual Drive program (Vamp or something like that) to try out a game on (Freespace 2, as I ran out of CD's to burn on and realised that it might be interesting for any files I use that generally are of ISO format etc.) but after getting rid of it, I no longer really wanted the virtual drive program, so I uninstalled it and there is no trace... I've just tried burning a few files on my only DVD RW drive. I've added the files normally to the "folder" of waiting to be burned, but when I put a disc in, it comes up with a blank screen and "CD Drive". I'm not one to jump to help immediately, so I've tried restarting the PC a few times (after uninstallation of the virtual drive system) and made sure there was no trace of that program, which I've confirmed, but nothing has helped. I'll get some pics up, This is what it should show, the DVD-RAM drive in action. Image1-3.jpg This is when I've put files on the copy to folder WITHOUT a disc in. Image2-2.jpg This is what happens once a disc is in. Image3-1.jpg As you can see, there is nothing. Image4-1.jpg I really do not know what else to do, so any help would be incredibly appreciated!

As far as I am aware, Windows XP is not capable of burning a DVD without 3rd party software such as Nero, Roxio etc.

Vikke, he's blocking out the names of his stuff. That's all.

Erm, I've burnt stuff to a DVD via Windows before with no problem. Not that I'd want to, though. Nero is far superior. Anyway, I'd suspect that the virtual drive fucked up your ASPI layer somehow...

(As an aside, I hope you're talking about the demo of FreeSpace...)

I hope you didn't obtain these files illegally?

I know a good virtual drive. I had to use it to burn some linux cds because they wouldn't burn correctly as .ISO's so I mounted them on the virtual drive so the comp saw them as CDs and it worked.

Edit: Reported for possible Warez.

...I am a moderator and know the rules :p Freespace 2 is open source, so it's all perfectly legal, don't worry :) Regardless of that, it's not that I lack the ability to burn, it's that when I put in a disc, the stuff disappears and I cannot burn, as it will not let me do anything useful.

Anyway, I'd suspect that the virtual drive fucked up your ASPI layer somehow...

If that is the case, how does on fix it?

Bear in mind that I'm not 100% sure if that is in fact the problem - messing around with your ASPI layer can cause all sorts of problems. Anyway, if you really want to repair a broken layer, simply re-install the latest Adaptec ASPI drivers here. IIRC a check utility is contained within the download package so that you can determine if your layer is, in fact, borked.

Ta, I'll try that out now and get back to you guys with the results.

EDIT:

Nope, no luck. I've tried to install it/run the programme twice and it's still not working. Any other ideas?

I've never managed to make it work. :confused:
