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??

Thanks.

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

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 www.plextor.com)

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: http://www.cdmediaworld.com/hardware/cdrom/cd_modifications_creative_121032.shtml

Download Firmware 1.04(DO NOT GO PAST THIS OR CERTAIN BACKUPS WILL NOT BURN):http://www.plextor.com/english/support/downloads/firm_1210_old.html

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

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.

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
