    Optiarc DVD+-RW AD-7640A ATA Device

    since I got my new notebook with a "Optiarc DVD+-RW AD-7640A ATA Device" AnyDVD can not find any drive. I also tried the current version
    I am using Vista and I also gave AnyDVD admin rights but nothing :-(.

    Any Idea what can help?

    Thanks a lot

    Do not create multiple threads about the exact same thing please. Click and read fully. Thank you

    1. Update Anydvd

    a) Keep your license key file backed up safely
    b) Uninstall Anydvd (start-->all programs-->Slysoft--->Anydvd-->Uninstall)
    c) Reboot
    d) Download Anydvd
    e) Exit all Slysoft programs (including Anydvd, Clonedvd2, Clonecd, Clonecdtray, Clonedvdmobile, etc.). Check Windows Task Manager if you have to.
    f) At this point disable your antivirus and firewall programs
    g) Reinstall
    h) Reboot
    i) Install your license key (if required)
    j) At this point enable your antivirus and firewall programs

    2. Click the red fox icon on your toolbar. Click "Default". Click "ok".

    3. What do you mean exactly by "Anydvd cannot find any drive"? Based on what?

    1. Are you rebooting after installing? You need to.

    2. Click the red fox icon on your toolbar. Click "Default". Click "ok".

    3. See if disabling User Account Control in Vista helps.

    4. Try deleting the drive and the associate driver in device manager and rebooting.

    5. Try clicking on the red fox icon on your toolbar-->navigate to "program settings"-->check "enable safe mode". Click "ok"

    Yes, I installed AnyDVD as you told. But I will not be able to tell you if disabeling User Account Control helps cause I ll get a new drive mine is dead now.

    I hope the other one is recognized better by AnyDVD...

    Well, if your drive is dead, there's not much Anydvd can do about it.
