Running an XP2800 with combo (sony) drive. CD RW + DVD. Get "write protect when trying to copy files to it. HW devices show 2 x drives with similar properties both shown as "working". MY COMPUTER showa drives "D" and "E". when I try to access "E" it says load disk o drive "E" but won't accept a disk when its loaded. It must be a simple problem but I havn't much hair left!!.
Drive "D" reads CD and DVD OK.

Thicko.

What you are copying? You may see this problem when trying to backup copy a Copy Protected Game CD.
