So, today I opened up iTunes to burn the 8 songs that I had just bought in their online music and video shop service. The program recognizes that a blank disc has been inserted into my cd drive, and notifies me that I can now burn a playlist. I put all my new songs into a playlist, make sure that everything is checked, and then i hit the “Burn Disc” button. After a bit of processing, the following message appeared in status box: “Disc Burner Or Software Not Found”. Seeing this, I immediately checked my Burning settings under Preferences, and saw that my DVD/CD burner was display there. So, I thought to myself, “What could be the problem ?”
I went to My Computer, right clicked on the drive and tried to look for updated drivers, and rolling back wouldn’t do any good since I couldn’t remember ever updating them in the first place. After a bit of searching, I found that the problem had been caused by the program Daemon Tools and the SPTD update that comes along with it. Some users found their solution is just uninstalling the program and altering/removing SPTD.sys (I didn’t read through it, because this wasn’t an option for me). However, I wanted to keep the program, and there was no way that I was going to uninstall/reinstall every time I needed to burn a disc. The program is also very easy to use, so I didn’t really want to use a substitute like Alcohol 100%. So, I found out a way to keep Daemon Tools, and be able to burn through iTunes.
Below are links to download an addon to daemon tools that upgrades the SCSI connection and fixes this iTunes bug. The addon is called, SPTD v1.50 X64
You can download them at http://disc-tools.com/download/daemon+sptd+md5sum, just look for SPTD v1.50 X64, and select the one right for your computer.
Or, I could just place direct download links here for both the 32-bit version, and the 64-bit version… I think I will…
After you download it, just install it.
Thanks for reading! If you still have problems, or just want to say thanks, you can comment it here.
