  • CD Burners

    I recently had to replace the CD / DVD Reader only drive. But though I only asked for a reader, the shop who sold me a new drive did not make it clear the new one was also a Burner as shown now by My Computer using Windows XP. Perhaps they no longer sell reader only drives.

    I already have a burner drive as well in this PC, but when I attempt to use File / Send to only the first Burner drive shows. Is it possible to persuade the new Burner drive to announce itself as also ready for burning under Windows. I do have Nero installed, but only licensed to recognize the first original burner drive.

    If you want to, install CDRTools (choose the second link). You can choose whichever drive you like. And it's free.

    Alternatively, select the desired drive in My Computer, right-click, choose Properties and hit the recording tab. You can set it there.
