Installation :
The Sanyo CRD-BP900P is an IDE CDR-W drive. We installed the drive on the Secondary IDE Channel, as the master drive. During boot-up, the BIOS identified the drive as the Sanyo CRD-BP900P. This was also true for Windows 98 SE. Minor configuration changes were made to Windows 98 SE. These were: disabling auto-insert notification and ensuring DMA was enabled.

The Sanyo CRD-BP900P supplied was manufactured in April 2000. The onboard firmware revision was version 3.0p20. After some time Sanyo provided us with a newer firmware revision for the drive: v3.20. This firmware fixed several bugs.

Currently, the following software supports the Sanyo CRD-BP900P: Nero v5.0.0.9, NTI CD Maker 2000 v4.0.22, Prassi PrimoCD Plus v1.1.356, BHA Bs Recorder Gold (only in Japanese language), Feurio v1.32 and Padus DiscJuggler v2.00.419 beta. All support the BURN-Proof feature on this drive.
