I have a mad dog external dvd burner, with an old dell inspiron 600m with windows xp.
I've used it with no problems until now.
I plug the burner into the usb and my computer will beep that something has been connected.
But, the burner will not show up in 'my computer' or the device manager.
I use ICopyDVDs2 to burn dvds and it usually automatically detects the burner, but now it doesn't seem to know it's there.
I've tried turning the burner off and then on again - that used to help - not now.
I also tried restarting the computer with the burner plugged in and on.
I looked online for a manual, but I don't think mad dog has a website?
I did get the burner to work on my computer at work, but it makes my programs run slow - and the dvd decoders I use aren't working for the dvds I need to burn - dvd shrink and dvd43
So if you know of better ones I can download - please let me know.
Is there anything I can do to get my computer to use this burner again?
