I am new here and was happy to discover this forum for cd's issues. the faq section helped me a lot and provided much info for me.
One thing i couldn't resolve is this:
I have a brand new NEC Optiarc DVD RW AD-7170A (nero infotool).
First of all - windows xp recognize the drive as cd-drive in My Computer display.
When i insert a cdrw, it doesn't allow me to erase the cd.
From my search on the web, I managed to change a registry setting to a value of 2 for xp to recognize the burner as a writable drive.
I want to be able to erase my cdrw with xp's ability. I believe it's a driver issue of the burner (since it's new) or a firmware - but untill here - it's all i know.
I'd appriciate any help in this matter.
