Did the drive come with any other burning software (like Nero)?
Thanks for help with the printer problem, y'all. I ashamedly admit that I don't make back-ups. You would think that a crash 2 years ago would have taught me a lesson. I made one set of back ups after that, and now I don't remember how to do it. I have win Me OS. I had a new DVD multiple player/ compact disc rewritable/ RW combo installed (don't ask me the make, it is not printed on the drive). When I go to back-up, I go to my computer; then I select a folder and by right clicking on it, try to "send to" "In CD Drive (D)". Then while I do have a blank CDRW disk in the drive I get the following message: "Please insert a disk into drive D:.". I don't remember if I have to format the blank disk first, or if there is a special trick to doing this with the Millenium OS. I had the same trouble with the CDRW I replaced, and wondered if the drive itself went bad, I had it replaced when I got the same messages just trying to "read" prerecorded disks & programs. I know this is really basic stuff, but I just dont do it often enough to remember what to do (I promise I will make note of step by step procedure). Please help as I'm stuck! and feel like a complete moron asking for such elementary instruction. Thanks alot
