Hi!

Just updated DT to latest version 4.09 (x86) from a version thats like a year old on a XP-system. After this my DVD-burner (NEC DVD-RW ND-3540A) wont recognize blank CD-R anymore! It still recognizes blank DVD-Rs.

Can anyone please help me with this? Kinda frustrating.

Did you try SPTD layer v1.45 yet:

It fixes some bugs with cd-recording software, report if it helps.

deleted SPTD.sys and still no luck. Should i just accept that daemon tools or sptd broke the CD-recording functions on my DVD-writer ? Ive seen some other posts on it on the forums so it cant be total news?

Please help.

If SPTD layer / Daemon Tools removal doesn't solve the issue, it wasn't caused by it in the first place.

Pretty obvious that the problems in mentioned threads are either different (DVD-ROM), not caused by Daemon Tools/SPTD (after reformat (!) problem persists), or caused by some problem in recording software (change to Nero solved the issue).
Ensure previous version is removed completely (see thread about error 25002 in common problems and solutions forum, reboot after the procedure); although I doubt it has to do with it.

have some more info heh, the dvd-writer doesnt recognize CDs at all, not audio-cds, not burned cd-rs, not original data-cds...

does that change anything ?

Sounds like the part of the assembly that reads CD media is hosed. You could always try it in another machine to make sure it's not a software conflict, but software can't make the hardware go bad like that. If it doesn't work in another machine (or after a format/reload of Windows), then it can't be SPTD or DTools.
