I got it - it turns out imgburn won’t recognize the drive itself unless there’s a disc in it. Once I loaded a disc, it showed up fine. thanks.
awesome program, btw - didn’t realize you were the author. while I’ve got you here, is there any way to blank rw discs in imgburn? I didn’t see that option anywhere, but there are so many I might have missed it so far. thx.
N/M - I just found the little icon. it was blanked out before. :-o excellent, thx.
