Well, for awhile now, the CD/D Drive hasn't been working. Recently, I read up that Sonic DLA must be downloaded in order for CD's to work in the drive? It seems like that, but it just worked... I think DLA is on the computer, but I have to click on an icon for it to load. I tried the Sims 2, but it wouldn't go past this one thing, and about an hour later I saw a message saying "Sonic DLA Is updating. Please wait.", though I restarted... what caused it to update? How can I do it again?



Thanks if you can help! (please move if neccessary, if there is another forum)

Sonic DLA is just a software utility which allows you to copy/paste files direct to the drive-letter of a CD-RW drive (using a CD-RW disc of course) just like writing a file to a floppy or hard drive. It is an optional piece of software and is definitely not required in order for your CD-drive to read discs unless those discs are cd-rw discs which were created using the Sonic DLA utility. Only then do you need Sonic DLA installed in order to read them.

Sonic DLA is here: [url="http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/Sonic-DLA-Download-110175.html""]http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/Soni...0175.html"[/url]]http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/Soni...oad-110175.html

You should uninstall your existing copy before installing this. And never update anything unless you have a compelling reason to do so (eg some part of it not working properly, a bug in the program, or a new feature you must have). Otherwise, don't update!
