Temperamental CD Rewriter

  kp101 20:41 05 Jan 2004

System - Dell XPSR450. Windows 98. Rewriter - Iomega 650. Software - Adaptec Easy CD Creator. Rewriter is fitted as master to secondary EIDE. Since purchase, the Rewriter has been erratic - ie 1) it has worked perfectly 2) it has not recognised a blank disk (it simply spins forever) 3) nothing has happened. Usually uninstalling the software, physically disconnecting the Rewriter, closing down, reinstalling & reconnecting has cured the problem short term. Now however, no matter how many times or in what order i perform the uninstalling/removal etc, the Rewriter refuses to recognise a blank CD - of any brand. Does anyone have any suggestions please?
