First check if device is recognised in bios, if it is then you need to fixwindows. If you cannot see cd unit in bios then check that slave/master / cable bridge settings at back of cd are fine.In this case the fastest way to test your unit is to connect it as single unit with a tested ide cable on the computer, just to test it. On the other channel you connect the hd. Eventually switch channels and cables between hd and cd.

Burning printable cds


I believe it means one of two things:
1: After burning a writable disc, it is not recommended to leave it in writable mode. You should finalize it so it can play on other players.

2: It said that it doesn't recommend burning RE-writable CDs. They tend to be much less reliable than writable ones.
