sonic stage won't create CDs - "device/media not connected"
Posted 28 March 2012 - 02:58 AM
it does everything EXCEPT when i go to create an audio, atrac or mp3 CD it insists "device/media not connected".
yet it imports CDs from the same drive very happily, and other software (windows media player etc) can burn CDs without any problems.
is there a way to point SS to the hardware and make it recognise it? if i did a complete uninstall and re-install would that solve it?
thanks for your help, it's been a while since i came to the forum, it's great to know it's still going on, A.

There's a control layer called px20.sys (if I remember right) that is inserted by SS to do its dirty work. Perhaps it doesn't work in Window/64.
But there may be more subtle (and more simple) things at work. I recall there's a lot of spiel about W7 and Vista being drive-letter agnostic. Did you somehow turn off the drive letter recognition that SS is relying on? Just a random thought..... especially if there are other devices around.
Ahhhhhh.... this machine of yours doesn't happen to have a SSD??? (all flash memory, no hard disk). I have no clue what that does to the drive map. Maybe nothing, maybe a CD/DVD drive on C:? One way or another it sounds like SS needs to be introduced to your burner. There's supposed to be a procedure which is automatically entered by SS, which tests drive speed for audio EXTRACTION - perhaps doing that will set up the PX20 layer?
Just a few ideas. You'll have to mess around. No one has reported this as a bug yet (AFAIK) but that doesn't mean you did anything wrong, either.
Keep us informed of your progress, please.
