    Hi.
    I recently installed Windows XP on my PC, and have been fixing the errors it casued one by one.
    The only thing that doesn't seem to work now, is the CDR drive.
    It is a LG CD-RW CED8080B.

    When I bought the PC, I got Adaptec 4.0 with it. This program does not work with Windows XP, so I acquired a copy of WinOnCD version 3.70.5.72.
    When I run the WinOnCD program, I get the following error message:

    Error receiving SCSI/IDE bus information:
    No SCSI host adapter found


    The program then opens, and It shows the tracks from the (audio) CD in drive D, but will not allow them to be dragged into the recording area (drive E).

    I also get a message when I boot up saying something along the lines of "CD Recording software may cause a problem with Windows, drivers have been disabled".

    Any ideas?

    Have you tried the CD writing program resident in XP? The WinOnCD 3.7 version is pre-XP. I have no idea whether it can be updated to XP.

    I've relented and got Easy CD Creator 5, updated it from the Roxio site for XP compatibility, and it appears to be working fine.
    I'll burn a couple of CDs tonight to check.

    Cheers.
