GreenMachine -> Creative CD-RW RW1210E (8/23/2001 12:58:04 AM)

I see all the forum posts are gone before I could get the info I needed on a post. Im having problems with any program detecting my burner. The only program that detects the drive is NTI (the software that came with the burner). I checked the Creative website and no firmware updates. Could anyone help me out??

Use nero Burning Rom:

GreenMachine -> RE: Creative CD-RW RW1210E (8/23/2001 1:47:49 AM)

I've tried Nero, Easy CD Creator and Pyro. Only the program the burner came with (NTI) will work.

Sillygates -> RE: Creative CD-RW RW1210E (8/23/2001 2:47:18 AM)

Well i can only think of one way: Flashing your drives firmware to plexwriter firmware.

Your drive internally is a Plextor 12x10x32a (dont think that this is a bad drive) i have one of these i got after it won numerous awards. (firmware avaible at

There are problems if you upgrade past 1.04firmware (this drive can copy early safe disc 2 and prevernted past firmware 1.04)

What I recommend:

Make your drive show up as plexwriter121032a:


This SHOULD work with adaptec, nero, etc (at least they do for me)

The Cd Media World update should work even thoughits tdk2plex because it works for all plexwriter equivatents (click the floppy disk to start the download

but before upgrading firmware
pls make sure that your 12x creative is plextor or liteon
..otherwise, you will wow........

OC-Freak -> RE: Creative CD-RW RW1210E (8/23/2001 7:13:45 AM)

If it's the 1210E model, it's a lite-on LTR-12101B.

You could convert it to a lite-on by using fw LS17 in DOS and then upgrade to the newest firmware.......THIS WOID THE WARRANTY.

GreenMachine -> RE: Creative CD-RW RW1210E (8/23/2001 11:46:30 AM)

So is the RW1210E a Plextor or a Lite-on??

Sillygates -> RE: Creative CD-RW RW1210E (8/23/2001 1:05:36 PM)

you could try them both, it is unlikely it will continue eith the flash if it is a incompatible drive, but oc freak is right, this would void your warranty only proceed if you have to

airian9 -> RE: Creative CD-RW RW1210E (8/23/2001 3:49:39 PM)

Hey Scott (GreenMachine).. Go to this website that shows you how to convert it to a liteon.
