Known Issues / Resolutions

GEAR licenses our CD/DVD recording "drivers" to many other companies to add CD/DVD recording capabilities to their software products.

Below are some common issues users of these GEAR Powered Products experience, and solutions for them.

Note: All GEAR Software products – including the GEAR drivers – are fully Vista compatible.

It is known that non-Vista compatible software installed on Windows Vista computers can cause compatibility issues with Vista and other Vista-compatible software. These non-Vista compatible software applications installed under Vista may prevent the GEAR drivers from loading properly – thus you may experience CD/DVD recording errors when using Vista if non-Vista compatible software is installed along with a GEAR Software product, or a GEAR Powered Product.

If your Symantec product states that your recorder is not supported, please download any GEAR Software product for Windows and test your hardware with the GEAR drivers using a GEAR Software product.

  • If your CD/DVD recorder works with a GEAR Software product, then your CD/DVD recorder indeed works with the GEAR drivers
  • If your CD/DVD recorder works with the GEAR drivers but not with a Symantec product, then the issue is related to that Symantec product, and any further support will need to come from Symantec Support


Note:
    In the past, Symantec products have been known to ‘filter’ CD/DVD recorders from their list of devices due to media types not supported by their application. If the recorder supports a media type their application does not support, such as DVD-RAM — regardless of whether the device also supports recording to CD-R and/or DVD±R media, often these devices are erroneously ‘filtered’ from the device list and are thought to be ‘unsupported’ by the GEAR drivers.
    It is an extremely rare occasion that a drive is not supported by the GEAR drivers.

¹ AMD64 / Intel 64 (EM64T)
² Apple has released a 64-bit version of iTunes for Windows


  • Installing the 32-bit version of iTunes on x64 hardware running a 64-bit version of Windows XP or Windows Vista will result in the iTunes application not having CD/DVD recording capabilities
  • Installing the 64-bit version of iTunes on x86 hardware running a 32-bit version of Windows XP or Windows Vista will likely result in the iTunes installation failing
  • Installing the 64-bit version of iTunes after uninstalling the 32-bit version of iTunes on x64 hardware running a 64-bit version of Windows XP or Windows Vista may not provide CD/DVD recording capabilities within iTunes.
    You may need to manually remove the 32-bit GEAR drivers. After removing the 32-bit version of iTunes and the 32-bit GEAR drivers from your computer, please install the 64-bit version of iTunes for Windows from the iTunes download page on the Apple website.


The 32-bit and 64-bit versions of iTunes for Windows are available on the iTunes download page on the Apple website.


Note:
    We highly recommend making a backup if you choose to modify the Windows Registry.
    Any mistakes made when modifying the Windows Registry can render your entire system inoperable.
