Look, normally I wouldn't do this, but I'm straight up running out of options. I've been skimming through a crap ton of forums, and not much has worked, so I'm turning to you guys to see if you can help me figure this out. So, I downloaded the trial of Corel VideoStudio Pro X5, and was trying to mess around with it. I put in a disc, pulled some of the footage off of it, messed a little with editing it, and then tried to burn it through the program. Things seemed to be going fine until The end of the burn process, where I got an "unspecified error", after which my disc kicked to Windows Media Player and started to play. I popped it out, tried it in a DVD Player, and no success.
"Okay, no big deal, will just try to burn it with different settings," I thought. Well, so much for that. As I put in another disc, I noticed my auto run didn't detect it. Getting a bad feeling, I checked My Computer and noticed that it now can't see my stupid disk drive. No CDs/DVDs are recognized in it, and it's become totally useless in a matter of a second. However, it still pops up in Device Manager and says that it's working fine(which is a filthy lie). I've tried doing a regedit as some places suggested, I tried uninstalling it and grabbing the drivers again, I tried disabling the integrity check, and all didn't do a thing. So I ask you guys, is there anything that you can think of? Has anyone had the same problem and fixed it, be it with Corel or another program? Also, assuming I do fix it, how can I prevent it from happening in the future, if I wanted to use something like Corel again?
Seriously though, this is why I can stand computers. Nothing friggin' works. I'm tired of every single program being a crap shoot whether it will even function or not. Heck, now I don't even know if a random program will destroy my computer, just 'cause. It's exhausting. For once, I wish something would just work like it's supposed to, without costing me hours of troubleshooting and trying to fix a temporarily broken machine. Gah, sorry for the rant. It's just that this type of crap happens way too often, and it's getting to me.
