SP 2 renders cd-rw useless

By abdrcjames ·
After installing SP2 I get an error message when trying to burn a disc I get a drive inaccesible error. The drive still reads CDs. When I restore back to before SP2 I can burn again. What can I do to make SP2 useable?

Could the Firewall be causing the issue? Do you have it on or off in your SP2 build?

There is a known issue with SP2 and some cd-rw drives. Microsoft has posted a hotfix for this issue. Click this link to read the KB article and download the hotfix. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;883523
Hope this helps.

This sounds like the problem, now am waiting 48 hrs on Microsoft cause tech help had to forward the problem on, it's too complex. Why can't the hot fix be on the same page as the info about it?
