    Neither of my cd-drives manages to read/copy any big files in win2k!

    I download every service pack, update, patch for windows, motherboard, graphics card and even the sound card but it still refuses to copy files exceeding some certain magical amount of information unto the harddrive.
    BUT, both CDs work like charm in win98.

    It somehow seems that it is the win2k standard issue cd drivers that is the problem, but MS haven't posted any new ones, and neither has the hardware producer.

    The CDs are one acer atapi cdrw 16x10x40 and a cd 36x of unidentified origin, both without any drivers included, both experiencing the very same problem.

    Help would be much appreciated!
