I searched this forum for an answer, but didn’t come up with anything so I request anyone’s help with this since my CD-RW drive’s manufacturer hasn’t yet been able to. I’m using an Iomega CDRW86522EXT3-B & their included HotBurnPro software (ver. 2.5.5) with an old Toshiba Satellite laptop & Windows 98SE. I right-click on the drive’s icon & select Iomega’s format from the menu. The format begins & takes over 50 minutes (including verifcation) to complete & reports the format was successful. I drag a file onto the CD-RW drive icon & get a message box saying “access is denied - make sure the disc is not full or write-protected.” I take a look at the properties & it shows 702 MB used, free space 0. Clicking on the Iomega HotBurn tab shows ‘unknown’ for the UDF revision as well as ‘unknown’ for all other items on this list. I then tried a quick format over the original format which didn’t change the results. A Level 2 Iomega support person said drag & drop wouldn’t work with W98SE, but it says on the 1st page of the Drag & Drop manual “Iomega HotBurn Pro Drag’n’Drop for WindowsÂ® 95/98/ME/2000/XP and Windows NTÂ® 4.0 is companion software for Iomega HotBurn Pro. Drag and drop files on to a disc, just like dragging and dropping files to a floppy or Zip disk.”
I read somewhere of a similar problem someone was having (not necessarily with W98SE) & the advice to them regarded Adaptec software that’s utilized by Windows Media Player.
I sure want & need to use true drag & drop, so I’d appreciate any help. Thanks in advance!
