DiscWrite Problem

Postby Larry Elliott » Sat Aug 27, 2016 09:19

DiscWrite is not seeing the hardware installed. Seems like I need to reinstall drivers.

Where can I find these or should I reinstall Pyramix?

Which version of Windows? What does the Windows Device Manager have to say about the presence or absence of your Optical Disk drive's Drivers? Enabled? I wouldn't suggest updating those beyond what Pyramix installed...

Make sure that you have not disabled any Printer drivers in your Windows Device Manager. I found this could affect DiskWrite in just this way. (This makes sense when you remember that the Report Creation and Outputting functions are coded into DiskWrite.)

A Pyramix re-install, using the "Repair" option should solve your issue, since the optical drive drivers are installed at that time. It's certainly easy enough to try. Don't forget to re-start the computer.

In previous versions of Pyramix there were some issues with the GEAR optical drive drivers, but I believe that with the advent of version 10, Merging started coding their own optical drive drivers. I'd ask Merging directly for clarification on this issue.

Make sure that DiskWrite is in the Disk Creation mode, and not Publishing - that's tripped me up on a couple of occasions. When DiskWrite first starts up, are you saying that nothing appears in the little window at the bottom of the DiskWrite display? No details about your drive appear?
