Suggestion do not load software for the new CDRW if its different from what is already on your comp

woodchip - whats the reason, should you load the same software for the second CDRW? David

The reason is that CDcreator and Nero can clash, they both load CDrom Drivers. If you have a CDRW and got CDcreator it will pic both drives up in the software as will Nero, There is no need to reload the software for the drive. The only problem that can occur is theat the drive may not be supported with the driver that's loaded if not then it would be best to remove the CDRW software and try the other Nero or suchlike
