Just recently, I have been unable to use Musicmatch and Sonic RecordNow with my CD-RW drive. Even when there's a CD in the drive, Musicmatch would say it is empty. RecordNow is even stranger, not only does it not see the CD but also shows that it is a DVD-RAM drive. However, I can see the CD using Windows Explorer and Windows Media Player.
The last thing I did before the problem started was buy and download some music files from puretracks.com. It did ask me to run some DRM software which works with Windows Media Player. As much as I don't want to be too hasty in pointing the blame, that DRM software looks pretty guilty to me.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
