installed said external usb 2.0 drive & hotburn pro s/ware to compaq Deskpro EP desktop pc running windows 98 1st edition, whenever i insert a fresh cd-r to the drive it thinks the disc is an audio disc and reports it as having 1 x audio .cda file/track in windows explorer.
inserted a fresh cd-rw disc and same problem - tried the ‘erase disc’ option within hotburn pro s/ware which worked ok then ejected disc, as soon as disc reinserted the external cd-drive letter changes to the ‘audio cd’ icon yet again.
have tried the following:
> uninstall & reinstall all iomega related hardware, hotburn software & drivers
> disable all startup group items using msconfig
> connecting another 2 x identical drives (bought 3 together in one go for a work project)
> inserting fresh cd-r disc into pc’s internal cd-rom drive - does not show up as audio cd i.e. works as normal
please help!! thanks
