I noticed your posting not far away from my own one (Victor L).
I am struggling with a "LiteOn CD-RW/Nero Express/Win98SE" set up. I have spent 55 hours so far trying to get to the bottom of the problem. I have written to Ahead Software in Germany but so far only received automated e-mail responses (which do contain helpful information).
You may be interested to see a posting on the ComputerActive Forum where many bits of information are being explored.
