No idea. But a DVD Writer will also write to a CD so why not take your CD Writer out and give it another try.

Iy may be of help if you can write down the exact error code as that may tell you what the problem is. It'll say something like Fatal Exception error at 0000012x002, the number bit may help to get to the bottom of it.

I did exactly the same took out CD-rom put in DvD-RW with CD-RW didn't like each other one bit swapped CD-RW for CD-rom, happy days both work very well together.

Also found this click here unfortunatly the error with the VxD vfat does not appear to be listed, well I can't see it. I'm wondering if its possible to reinstall this file, presuming it is this that is corrupted, hopefully some of the Forum may be able to tell you how to do this, its a bit over my head I'm afraid. I would probably have to blank and reinstall windows.

The DVD Writer will do all you want. Suggest you uninstall the CR Writer as it is now redundant.

Alternatively, if the CDR is internal, disable it via Device Manager, and then see if the problem resolves itself.
