I have just fitted a Benq 5232W CD-RW in place of my CD Rom drive. Plug and play recognised the change but it will only read and not write.I am running Win98SE.
Suggestions appreciated.

You don't mention using any particular software?
Roxio or Nero are the two best known, and one of them is often packeaged with the drive.

Only when the software is installed will you be able to write or rewrite with the new drive..... In the meantime, Windows 98 can read with it like any other CDROM

Have no software as CD-RW was given to me - Where can I get software - any downloads?
