    Hello,

    I'm on a Win XP system and my cd burner just stopped working. It will read CDs but not burn them. Nero says it can't communicate with the device and the windows burner that comes with XP says the same thing. It's an Optorite cd-rw cw4802. I've already tried uninstalling the hardware, reinstalling... uninstalling hardware, then uninstalling nero and reinstalling.. I still get the same error. There were no problems prior to this one.. it was working fine and then one day it stopped.

    Any suggestions?

    Why don't you try updating the correct driver and firmware? That should do the trick.
