cd-r installation

I have recently bought a LG cd-r. I have managed to connect it correctly (i think), ensuring that the CD-rom drive is set a master and the cd-r is set as slave. There is power to both drives and i have a D and E drive registered on my computer. ALthough when i check the properties of my E-drive it reads as a Cd-rom drive. Is this right, or should it say a Cd-r drive?

Furthermore, although the Cd-r drive can play Cds, the same as a CD-rom drive i cannot actually copy anything using the drive. I have adaptec easy cd cdopier software, and everytime i insert a blank cd into the cd-r as it requests the computer just freezes and i have to restart it by turning off the power. Why is this? is it the software or a wrong connection internally to the cd-r. I have tried changing the copying speed, different cd's, everything apart from throwing it out the window!!! PLEASE HELP!

RE: cd-r installation

Funny!!! I had the same exact problem last night. What I have found out is that although for a 4x, which i had working before last night, Roxio's Easy Creator4.02 works great. However, it was not programmed to recognize 12X, which are considered High Speed Drives(HSD). GO to this link...
and download the appropriate upgrade to 4.05. This might sound stupid but I have yet to get mine to work, but thats because i messed with the config when it didnt work the first time. When you download it and run it, test the drive to recognize it and you should be set. Im still stuck on the master and slave thing....
Please do me a favor and let me know what happpens.

RE: cd-r installation

I am having the similar problem as I think I have installed the LG's CDR-DVD-CD-RW correctly but the Easy CD Creator 5 doesn't work. Initally it started hanging but then I came across a "Reservation Conflict" saying that my drive is already in use so I can't record anything on it.

RE: cd-r installation

i bought a media-stor cd-r everyting installed , drive, software... except the audio cable.
I know where it goes on the cd burner....but where does it go on the motherboard??????

RE: cd-r installation


To find out where to connect the audio cable on the motherboard you should refer to the motherboard manual which should have came with the motherboard. If you did not receive a motherboard manual, you can check the website of your motherboard manufacturer to see if they have a copy online.
