There are no DRIVERS.

Stop looking please. If your Roxio doesn't support it, then see if they updated Roxio and check their support database.

In closing, CDBURNERXP may let you use your new drive while you sort out Roxio.

Is your burner seen as a burner in Device Manager? If so, you have drivers, even if they need upgrading. Look on all the packaging and paper work you got with the unit(even the front of the deck-one of my decks has the driver update address there). Somewhere in there is probably a web address for updating.
Part 2: The problem could be the burning software. Some
people have had trouble with Roxio.
Try removing the deck from the Device Manager, then reboot. It should automatically reinstall, asking for software if it needs them.
If you still have the problem, try completely uninstalling Roxio and reinstalling after reboot. Post back if this doesn't work. chuck

(NT) (NT) That's firmware update, not drivers, by the way.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
