I'm on Win98SE, and just treated myself to a burner. This is the first time I've ever had a burner! Unforunately, I'm not having very good luck with my first try.
When I try to burn anything, with different CD-Rs, it errors with a Power Calibration Error. I get the same in Nero Express and CDBurnerXP.
I tried newer firmware, it said it didn't detect the drive at all.
