I just rebuilt my system, upgrading from a Xeon 450 to an AMD 1.4. I reused my Philips CD-RW. Unfortunately, when I reinstalled Adaptec Easy CD, I am receiving an error message telling me that no recordable CD can be found. Looking at the drive in the device manager, it shows as an IDE CD R/RW, but under properties, it shows the device type as "DVD/CD-ROM device". To the best of my knowledge this device is strictly plug-and-play. I've never had any specific drivers for it (or for any drive, for that matter) Any suggestions?
Actually, I never got it to work with that drive. I bought a new Plextor, formatted the hard drive, and started over. Everything works fine.

I'm sorry that I can't provide a direct solutions, but I my best recommendation would be to try Nero and see if it can recognize the drive. Here is a <font color=blue><A HREF="http://www.nero.com/en/download.htm" target="_new"> free demo. </A></font color=blue>

Thanks for the help.
I moved to Nero, and all is well.
I offer a penny for your thoughts, but you give me your two cents worth.
