And at NO TIME do I ever try to format and use such media as a drive. I can not help folk that are trying that.
I see CDBURNERXP still lists Windows 2000 if you need the usual CD/DVD recorder software.
Sorry if you want to do that old drive letter thing but it's something I can't help folk with. It was too unreliable and after a few folk told me it was my fault the data vanished or didn't work on other machines I decided it was too unreliable.
Scenario: Using a w2k machine and OS = Pro and machine is just as old. Burner on it is a Lite-On LTR 48246s. Get new disks from store...go to format...machine keeps saying "insert disk into drive X".
Other scenario: format the disk in a win 7 with a 1.5 udf and by a miracle the w2k machine now reads and I'm able to open the disk, BUT:
Problem: can't/don't "have permission" to write to the disk. I'm kinda stumped and would like a workaround to this so that I have this capability on the w2k machine.
My theory: Download a cd burner software package that is compatible with w2k and the lite-on. So:
Solutions: Anyone???? Any and all advice heeded and followed....not to mention appreciated.
