I’ve just purchased a new machine from a local shop here in town. Included is a DVD/CD writer ARTEC VOM-12E48X . A OEM type writer which a OEM version of NERO. The problem is in writing files to a CD-RW the file attributes change to READ ONLY thus preventing me from dleting the individual file from the CD.
I will not go through the entire history of the steps taken to correct this problem. I will say that we have tried XP PRO and home eddtions. Have up graded the NERO software to the latest versions , and I am not running SP2 on the XP PRO version I am running now, just SP1.
At one time we did get this thing to work after updating the Sound Blaster Audigy software I am running. About 1 hour later the brand new HD crashed and it was back to square one. At that point I was running XP PRO and had Media player in the system. The Tech guy syas the hard drive going was just a seperate thing, i.e. the drive was defective.
The system was reloaded as before with updated versions of Sound Blaster and NERO thinking all would be ok. This time a DVD would not play. After removing MS media player that was working. IN fact other than then this automatic changing fo files to READ ONLY everything works fine.
Is there some setting we are overlooking?
