I tried connecting the external drive and then removing it properly with the safely remove hardware, but I still get the error message.
I use I Copy DVDs 2 to burn dvds and I don't think it's accessing the external drive because if it could I would be burning discs. When I open up ICopyDVDS2 it doesn't recognize the burner.
Is there anyway to find out what's accessing the burner and turn that off?
I'm really just trying to get the dvd burner to work - it shows up in the safely remove hardware - but not in my computer??
thanks for all the input so far everyone
