    Creative CDRW 8432 Help!!

    Locked

    by decio_novaes ·

    Both Windows 98 and Windows 2000 recognised Creative CDRW 8432E, but NOT as a CD recorder but as a common CD ROM. I installed the drivers, but the problem remains. When I open Nero, it says that there’s no cd recorder availiable on the system. I tried to upgrade the firmware from 1.05 to 1.07, but the setup program didn’t find the Drive. However, I can read any CD from it!! The BIOS finds the drive, Win98 describes it correctly in Device Manager as Creative CDRW 8432E (same to Win2k), but it only works as a CDROM…. The drive is configured as Secondary Master. Any Ideas????
    Thanks!!!

      The only thing I can think of is that it’s an incompatible drive for nero. I had a similar problem with adaptec not recognizind an hp 9100. I installed the newest adaptec and it was fine. Try putting in a blank cdr and formatting it as you would a floppy.

      Probably the BIOS is older and not. Probe a big disk (>8Gby) if the bios is older will not recognize all the disk.
      Bye

      Try putting the cdrw as master on the secondary and put the cdrom slave off the hard drive.Also remove your dos drivers.START/RUN/SYSEDIT/OK AND PUT A REM IN FRONT OF THE LINES THAT HAS TO WITH CDROM’S.IN THE CONFIG BOX AND AUTOEXE BOX ONLY.(EXAMPLE:REM C:MSCD)

        Thanks for all the answers, folks. I took the unit back to the shop, where they confirmed that the unit is deffective. They’re changing the unit for a new one.
