Plextor 24x IDE and Fireburner

Hi gang, thought i’d post this to the newbie forum first in case i’m doing something stupid. I just purchased a Plextor 24/10/40 IDE Burner and am trying to use it with Fireburner but it will not recognize, this is under windows 2000, a new install. I’ve installed the 2000 service pack and attempted to install the atapi drivers from the fireburner site but it doesnt’ seem to do anything. What am I missing here? Or should I just try and use another software such as cdrwin. Anyway, I have NOT upgraded the firmware of the drive yet so I assume it is at 1.0.

Thanks for any help

:cool: :cool: :cool:

I had the same problem, the drive isn’t recognized in some burn apps.

I’m using the newest version of nero now and that just works fine.

So just download nero on and get the number of it.

Then your problem is solved.
