Sorry for not getting back sooner, but I've had my fair share of problems!
I reinstalled WinME last Wednesday and everything seemed fine until I tried to access the internet. No connection! Device Manager said that my modem was 'working properly' so I couldn't figure what the problem was? Couldn't contact yourself because I don't have access to another computer - Catch 22! After two days of trying to sort it out, I headed off to buy a new modem and on my way to the store I had a flash of inspiration - maybe the driver for the modem needed to be reinstalled!
Asked for help from the 'engineer' in PC World, but for all the help he was, I might as well have asked my dog. (I don't have a dog, but you know what I mean!)
Anyway, Windows couldn't find a driver in any of my backup CDs etc. By this time I was saying words like GOSH, and MY OH MY!
Windows eventually found a suitable driver in my old, original Windows 95 CD! (Don't know why it couldn't find a driver in Win98 or WinME?)It then took hours for me to set up the ISP etc - I'll spare you the details!
Anyway, when I eventually heard the dialling tone on my modem, on Friday evening, it reminded me of hearing the first cry of my firstborn son 25 years ago!
I spent the weekend reinstalling all my programs etc and here I am, back on line!
I've used NERO to save a few tracks onto my hard disk, with no problems, and I've backed up a few disks to ease myself into using it. I haven't yet downloaded CloneCD, as Nero sems to cover my needs.
Things are OK at the moment and I'm tempted to load EZCD, just to see if it would now recognise the Mitsumi CDRW, but I think I'll resist the temptation!!! I'll just stick with Win Media Player to listen to my music. (I couldn't get Nero Player to access and play the tracks which I had saved to the HD. Does Nero Player only play tracks which have been saved using Nero Burning Rom?)
One thing which is interesting is that the whole appearance and layout of CDRINFO has changed? Is this just a coincidence, i.e. did the forum change its layout/appearance last week? or is it that I did a CLEAN install with my WinME 'upgrade' disk and I now have a full-blooded version of ME?
Ayway, thanx loads for all the help you've been.I'm on a steep learning curve!!
