Got this drive the other day but no success so far. I think the significant thing is the 'B' on the end of the model name - a revision of the 24/10/40...Nero just doesn't find the drive.

I still find it incredible that TDK can send me a drive for which the bundled software doesn't work. Are there any unofficial patches to get me up and running?

Try Nero 5554 here http://www.warp2search.net/download.php?op=getit&lid=100 . THat's very interesting that there is a new revision of the drive , I wonder if is an rebadged plex !! Does it have 1 light on the front of the drive or 2 ? How big is the buffer , 2MB , 4 MB , or other ? What country was it made in China or Japan or other . Also is there a "TLA #" anywhere on the box or the drive label ?

I have a TDK cyclone AI-CDRW241040B and only works with Easy cd creator 5.1 basic (trial edition). I think that the new cyclone is manufactured by LITE-ON. In TDK website, the firmware upgrades are only for model 241040X. If anyone knows more about this new drive, please post in this forum. Jorge.

Hi chaps, thanks for the help. The plot thickens, so to speak.

jb, to answer your q's: It has a single front light, 2MB buffer (according to the tech specs), made in China, can't see a TLA number but don't want to crack my box open again to look at the physical drive. Manufacturers date is 16th Oct, only a few days before I got it!

Downloading 5554 as I type, so fingers crossed.

Jon

Weird.

Success at last!

To get the drive to work, you have to uninstall all versions of the software, manually delete the ahead directory and reinstall 5551 or later, then use the license key when the demo runs out (crazy piece of sw design). Doesn't exactly endear me to Nero - hopefully other software will soon support this drive.

I had a similar problem with nero and a liteon 24x burner. The way we fix the problem was uninstall nero and clean the
reg of anything to do with nero. Then reinstall nero and it found it and worked so it was the pc not the program. Nero is
a great program.
Hope it helps

Hmm.. I just bought this one a couple nights ago... Model AI-CDRW241040B .. It came with Nero 5.5551 and it works fine burning a audio CD at 16X, right out of the box in Win2K SP2.

My drive has one light on the front of it, and the ROM version is 57S2, Manufacturered Oct 11 2001. Made in china.

Is it Plextor or Sanyo??

bought one of these 20th november runs with nero out of box also clonecd, writer not found in cdrwin.
also there is firmware update on tdk website but get the correct one
there are two for the 24 speed a/x and only one for the 24b. does anyone know who makes it, the young lady in the shop told me it was a plextor. but that may be because i went to buy a plextor and they didn't have any left

the TDK 241040B is most definitely a Lite-on as it features "Smart-Burn", a Lite-on technology, but the TDK ID string will not allow you to upgrade firmware with Lite-on fw, you must use TDK's
