having issues with Combi 16x10 CD-RW/DVD Drive installed in a Compaq Presario 5109 (1.2 GHZ Athlon), believe it was taken from an HP 533w (2 GHZ) machine. It reads pre-recorded DVD's, Music CD's & CD-R's just fine but won't recogize CD-RW's (either blank or filled)...Just spits them back out w/error that it doesn't recognize the disk type...

I came across postings elsewhere that special DVD/CD drivers are not req'd in Win98 but that CD burning software must be installed in order for Win98 to differentiate between CD & CD-RW. I've got Iomega Hotburn installed & this "sees" the drive OK, but still no luck w/CD-RW's (my external Iomega CD-RW drive works fine using the same burning software on the same machine)...

Anyone out there have any suggestions on possible fixes? Any help is much appreciated!
