  1. Great analogy and reply. That UAC together with Windows Defender can sometimes be annoying with clearly non-sketchy stuff. Though it's very good, and a lot better than most, or at least having to find something that would in all honesty be that much better, or as smooth, non-invasive. I'm a proponent of built in apps made especially for the platform they're on. Happy New Year Guys 🥳
  2. Oh, I get it now. I was misunderstanding what enabling or disabling the UAC actually does. I thought having it on "never prompt" just meant less security, and not that it now sees you as Admin. This made sound simple to many, especially way advanced users as yourself, though leave it to Microsoft to not be more specific with this. They automatically want you to feel less safe by immediately saying "not recommended at all". Thank you for clarifying this for me. Turned out the drive was just a lil unhinged when I layed it flat from the vertical position. Now all is well. Happy New Year to you and all the guys!
  3. Yes I believe so. I think also when I lay it down horizontally from the vertical position, it may loosen up a cable etc...
  4. Looks like I fixed it for now. Must of been a loose cable. My PC is not Windows 11 ready. That's ok. I'm not going to sweat that right now. Just got it and it's doing just fine.
  5. That was my typo. Just 😧 drive. Is it dead? It opens etc...
  6. Hi LIGHTNING. Do you mean that it shouldn't prompt if you have UAC disabled? If UAC is enabled then the order is to prompt. Let me know because all of a sudden I'm getting this with a CD/DVD Rom drive that was just fine before. Thanks.
  7. @dbminter Hi long time. I'm just hanging in there with all this new Omicron Variant nonsense. I have an issue. I keep getting Device- Initialise0 Failed! Device: [0:0:0]. TEAC DV-28S-Y F.4A (DD:) (SATA) This drive will not be visible in the program. I tried giving it sharing privileges and still got this message. Do you have the cure? Thanks! Hope all is well.
  8. I think my USB Slim LiteOn opens to the right as well. Since it's a slim I just laid it down on top of my Tower which has 2 USB ports on there. Whoever is dealing with Piodata is a solid company. You're not going to get any run arounds from them. I take chances with companies etc... that sound honest and even look honest online. I even dabble with refurbished stuff sometimes as it's been put through the ringer, and at times is better than the original as when they warrant a cellphone. Glad you're doing fine now. Everyone reacts differently to the COVID-19. A relative of a friend couldn't handle it mentally and after she got better was sent to Bellevue.
  9. Hey how's everything? How's everyone been, including admin? Hope as fine as can be under the circumstances. This Cuomo opened NYS totally and it was hectic just walking around. Otn, I still have my LG Super Multi DVD Writer GH24 which I usually use for reading as it's still pinned to DVD-R book type. I also still have my Skin USB LiteOn which is still going strong. My writing drive is the Piodata which you can check out here along with other writing tools etc. https://www.runtechmedia.com/ Check it out and if you want give their DVD or Blu-ray discs a try. They carry quality goods compared to current name brand items.
  10. I totally agree with Chv3rOn. Skip PayPal and go directly to your bank. They'll take care of it pronto! Some people I know swear by PayPal, though I never did. Ebay neither. Take your time. Shop around. There are some really good burners out there besides LG. I only use mine to read as I posted earlier.
  11. Yeah next time make sure you read where it comes from because we're having a lot of issues with products from China as you may well know from the president's actions toward that whole situation. it happened to me that's why I'm speaking about this. I ordered a simple thing from Amazon one time and it took weeks to come because it was coming from mainland China.
  12. Why does everybody praise VLC as some kind of best video player if on more than one occasion I haven't been able to play simple and already updated MKV files especially with the subtitles? Even VSO's player was tearing on me with the MKV hevc video file the new format H .265. And I'm confused as to whether or not they're supporting mpc-hc anymore as some places have it as being supported and some places have it as it being dead as of 2017. MPC did straighten out and was handling almost everything you throw at it so maybe I need to give it another try. Let me know what's been working for you outside of VLC. Microsoft Movies & TV app is working very well they've updated the codex and it seems to be playing just fine. I checked some of my blank DVD + r dual layers that I had bought and for some reason towards the bottom of the stack there were some used ones that were very scratched up and everything which I found kind of strange. It seems as if they just dumped those into the stack and sold them to me that way because I don't remember ever going down there and scratching those things up. I had to go through 10 scratched up discs before I got to a brand new one. So that's something that I'm going to have to tell Amazon about and most likely not buy that brand anymore if it continues to do that. Does ConvertXToDVD include all the workings of a DVD like page cells etc...? ImgBurn will always come up with that end of the world pop-up because of no where to include the later break. What's the cure for this if any? No other software gives this issue. It just burns the DVD file and includes the break somehow. If there's a way to just burn dual layers without this end of the world and it be fine let me know. I can't even use ImgBurn as the burning software for say DVD-RB Pro etc... because it won't burn it. If there's ever an update it should be this here issue. Thanks.
  13. Media compatibility is a huge concern, and Ritek is very well known and used. My slim USB LITEON has been great, and they have a Blu-ray model. I know you don't like the slims, though for a couple of bucks it's worth trying out new ones. I just use my LG to read now that I have 2 burners that don't automatically bitset to DVD-R.
  14. Wow! You would think this is a national security issue or something! Lol!!! You are correct! No Blu-ray Writers by PIODATA, though their BD-R Discs seem to be quality product. https://www.piodata.com/t/categories/Blu-ray-Blank-Media Worth a look. I'm having to first get me a Blu-ray writer then blanks. You're LG NS60 is at the top of the list on some reviews believe it or not. Hope they fix that issue for you.
