I have a PX-716A (TLA 0308) connected as master on IDE port 2 on its own. It’s been working fine and is recognized in Win XP SP2. Both Plextools (V 2.25) and Nero (220.127.116.11) are installed and I’ve burned many CDs and DVDs without a problem. I have no disk emulation software on my system and have not installed the InCD packetwriting software. The drive’s DMA mode is UltraDMA mode 4, if that matters and under plextools the “hide cd-r media” is not checked.
I installed iTunes 5.01 2 days ago and bought some music. I wanted to burn it to a CD but then was given the message that I either don’t have the right software or a supported burner. Under iTunes “Edit->Preferences->Advanced->Burning” tab, under CD burner, there is no supported drive detected.
I did a search here, on google and looked through iTunes site but can’t find a way to get the drive to be detected. I uninstalled and re-installed itunes without any effect. I used Nero info tool and it said no system ASPI was detected (though I thought iTunes had its own). Anyway, I found a program that installs ASPI v 2.60 and I did so. Now infotools shows both a system and nero ASPI detected and working. Still iTunes doesn’t show the drive.
What is odd is that when I insert an audio CD into the drive, iTunes recognizes it and plays the music. Also, when I insert a blank CD-R, iTunes also recognizes I did so and suggests I make a playlist for burning. I made a playlist with my purchased music and one with my old MP3s. In neither case will it burn as I immediately get the error that my drive isn’t supported or I don’t have the right software. Does anyone have any suggestion?
P.S. I just installed iTunes on my laptop with a Matshita DVD-RAM drive and iTunes does recognize the drive and allows me to burn music on that. My laptop also has Nero 18.104.22.168 installed (without InCD).

Seagate 7200.7 IDE drive as master on IDE 1.
PX716A installed as master on IDE 2.
I have installed the Nvidia mother board drivers V6.66 but I had some corruption on my drive. So I reinstalled Win XP (new system with fresh XP so I had nothing to lose) with the drivers but this time I did not install the nVidia sw ide drivers or my firewall drivers. I’m using the MS default IDE drivers.
