Also...on fresh restart, the pcrw804 doesn't spin up like my other cd rom. When I go to my computer...cdrw is recognized by windows but is never ready. The only thing I can do is eject, but when the tray slides back in to the drive, it keeps flashing....flashing..then locks up my computer and forces me to power off...or just plain blue screens. I am running Windows 98 SE, with a 500 celeron...drive worked fine up until about a month ago. On Direct Cd, it recognizes the drive as well...but says the device is "not ready." So far, I have tried flashing it...which did not complete successfully. I have also downloaded your 249k fix. The checker said I did not have an adaptec controller installed correctly. I went to adaptecs site and downloaded the 4.71 drivers...using their checker aspi was installed correctly..ran yours again, and it said..not properly installed. Drive remains KIA.
I miss my burner. It didnt make too many coasters in its run. But now, I wanna send it to hell. HELP ME!
