How to disable a DVD Drive?

  tighmor 19:49 11 Nov 05

Since installing a new DVD Drive I am having trouble with one of my programs - Proshow Gold - and would like to disable the drive to force the program to use my other - cdw drive.

Can I do this withourt physically disabling?

alternatively can you not tell proshow to use the alt drive?

device manager to disable? Not sure how to access this. Control panel does not seen to offer it?

Proshow contacted - 3 times so far - but have not yet got a response. Usually they are quite quick back.

Start, Control Panel, System, Hardware tab, Device Manager Button.

Thanks, disabled OK. Unfortunately has not solved the problem so it must be within Proshow Gold - have not had a reply from them yet.

somewhere in pro show options/properties must be an option to tell it what to use

Enable/Disable this Device from Device Manager (i.e. highlight your drive and click Properties.
