    Burner Issue

    I just upgraded (clean install) from Win98SE to Win2k Pro and the burner was working fine with Win98SE and Adaptec but when I upgraded to Win2k Pro Adaptec only recognizes the burner (A Matshi-ta [Panasonic] 8x4x32 CD-RW) as a CD-ROM. I also tried CloneCD which wouldn't work. I have used the same software (Burning Applications [Adaptec and CloneCD] and Operating system [Win2k Pro]) on a different computer with totally different hardware and had no problems what so ever.

    I assume that it is some setting or little driver issue but I have been unable to figure it out. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thank You!

    Moved to the tech board...
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Goto the manufacture of the cd drive's website and download new drivers, possibly a win2k driver. Second, get Nero ...free if you have to. Adaptec is the most unacceptable software I've seen.
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    sometimes win2k has problems recognizing hardwares. in win2k(i used both pro & server), my printer(connected through the printer port) was never recognized or picked up by the comp, i had to use all my skils for hours just to print one page...but with xp, there's no problem...no problem at all.
    oh i'm sorry! i didn;t realize my fist was rushing to meet ur face!

    A couple years ago I had some ATAPI problems with my burner and windows 2000. If your not at the latest service pack (sp3 I think?) I'd goto that and see what happens. If that doesnt work, a Google search brings up a lot of windows 2000/burner issues. And I have to agree on Nero. It blows everything else out of the water.
