Creative Blaster CDRW not detected Win2k

By fongch ·
Hi, I have blaster cdrw 12x10x32 and cdrw 40x12x40 installed with Win2k. In Bios level it is detected but when in Win2k, Nero and Adaptec cd creator could not detect any cdrw drives. Are there any files/patches which i could use to get it working? Thanks v much!

Creative Blaster CDRW not detected Win2k

1. Does Windows recognize the drive?
If the drive does not show up in either My Computer, or Windows Explorer, thenWindows is not recognizing the drive.

Your best option is to download the latest IDE driver for your system / motherboard.

If you need help identifying the motherboard, try the tools at either www.motherboards.org
or www.wimsbios.com

2. I know that Roxio (Adaptec) has a number of patches, drive updates, and other updates.
Make sure to follow their instructions as to the installation sequence for the patches.

Note: there are some major problems if you try to install Nero without thouroughly removing Adaptec/Roxio from the system.
Nero has a utility that you can download so you can switch between the 2 software packages.
