Thanks for your response. I am not quite clear why you directed me back to my original thread?! What seems to be happening is that RecordNow 7.2 does not recognise the DVD drive whereas RecordNow 6.7 does.
I have had some feedback from Benq. This suggests that RecordNow 7.2 only recognises a BENQ... rather than ATAPI...
If somethng in XP SP2 is stopping the recognition process working, thne maybe the same thing exists in Windows SP4 (which is what I am currently running). I don't want to take a rsik and uninstall SP4 in the hopethat it might work.
It would be nice to hear from someone with Windows 2000 who is having success with the Dual Layer 822A and RecordNow. I ssuspect that I am the only person using this combination?
I like recordNow. It is very simple, which is just what I want. Nero seems to be more like an entertainemnt experienec when you start it up, but at least it can be installed and it gives Dual Layer support.
Any moe ideas very welcome!
