Thread: DT killed my CD Drive

  1. #1

    Default DT killed my CD Drive

    I installed DT 4.10 and after restarting it killed my CD drive. It`s gone in windows or total commander it isnt anywhere.

    I can select it under hardware but I can`t install a new driver for it or anything else. What had happen?!

    I don`t want to reinstall my XP version!!!

    Is this bug known? I happend a year ago to me then I had to reinstall win XP.

    First, DT doesn't kill anything.
    Second, you installed an outdated version.

    Also, be sure you arenґt running Starforce or Securom games. Those are the ones who kill CD drives.....

    Only old StarForce version could harm the drives - SecuROM not.

    As far as I know this is the solution to the DMA/Stepdown issue that happens in BOTH Starforce and Securom diskchecks: SecuROM

    Why you say new Starforce canґt harm the drives?

    Old StarForce versions sent commands directly to the drives - even when the disk is somewhere else inserted.

    Also i haven't heard of a case in which a new StarForce version harmed the optical drives.
