I installed daemon tool light to avoid the hassle of writing the saved images and thus also utilizing them as well. But surprisingly my DVD RW stopped working. I uninstalled the DT light, but still problem persists. I must say that I installed the DT light from the same DVD RW but now it has stopped responding, it starts working once a DVD or CD is inserted but is unable to display data. The DVD-RW icon in my computer is visible; it ejects the tray as well but is unable to display the data on screen.
Physical DVD RW stops working with the installation of Daemon tool light
Can you provide more details regarding your DVD drive? What is the brand/model and what is its interface (IDE or SATA)? Have you tried installing the same DVD-RW drive to a different computer to see if the problem is not the drive itself?
In the meantime, here are a few things you could try:
1. Get the latest Daemon Tools Lite and install it. Update SPTD (one of Daemon Tools' components) as well.
2. Do a System Restore to the time before you installed Daemon Tools.
3. Run Windows System File Checker (sfc /scannow) to have it restore system files to the default ones.
Info on System File Checker (SFC):
Hope this helps.
