I am using all MS-supplied drivers for my Intel mobo. When writing the images, I get no errors, however when physically starting up a game (the Sims, Diablo II (install doesn't work), C&C: RA2, B&W, Undying, etc.) I will be asked to insert my original CD or I will get some type of error:
"[Program Name] has caused an error in ~DF394B.TMP." (this changes depending on game) "[Program Name] will now close.
If you continue to experience problems, try restarting your computer."
I must mention that I am using Fujifilm branded 700mb/80min green-dye CD-Rs rated for 8x. Also, when I load up Daemon Tools, the programs work 100%. And, yes, the NR-7800a supports all those RAW writing modes. Perhaps I should try a different media type? I will go and buy some Memorex and some generic branded CD-Rs & -RWs on sale at CompUSA today, and will see if media plays a role in the functionality of my software titles. I should get my first few coasters in a couple of hours, at which point I'll share my results.
