Ok, i built a computer for a friend some time ago and weve never had any problems, untill his most recent re-format. He can no longer burn anything for some reason, any burning software shows the drive as being an image recorder and doesnt offer any help on how to fix this. Is there anything i could be doing wrong? The drive is an Optorite 52x burner, and is set up as the slave on the secondary IDE channel with a dvd player being the master. Thanks in advance for anyhelp. :)

First off, what software are you using? If you're using Nero and you only see Image Recorder in the drive selection, your CD is no longer being recognized. Does the CD drive appear in My Computer? If not, check Device Manager and see if it appears there, and what error code is present.

Thinking back to when I saw this problem in Nero and CD Creator, it was because I had to install an update patch for both programs in order for the software to recognize my Yamaha F1 drive.

I wasn't far off the mark.:D

i still havent ever heard of a driver for a cd rom or a cd burner....


not since the old 2x cd roms.

they were almost always proprietary, and usually ran off the sound card.

it has been ages since i seen anything this lame, and i hope you didnt add something this retarded to the machine you built for him.

The drive came only with a copy of nero, no drivers or any such thing. XP recognizes the drive as being there, but nero and easy cd creator do not.

5.5.9.14 is the version of nero he is using and so am i, with out any troubles at all.

For the Roxio Easy CD Creator updates:
Roxio Updates
They have patches that will allow the software to detect newer CD burners.
