Help please !! how i get a CDRW SONY working in XP

I have just upgraded my system to Windows XP and now my CDR-W Sony CRX 175E2
does not work. The system recognizes this hardware as a CD
drive but not as a writer.
I tried to find some driver updates in the Sony page but no such luck.
As for the software I have Easy Creator
5 platinum and the B's clip from sony.
The CDR-W works in win 98 but on XP doesn't Can someone please help me?! Thanks

Hi,

My problem is a little different from yours. My sony recorder works properly in Windows 98 e 2000, but B's Clip won't in Windows XP (other cd writer than sony). If anyone gets the key answer, please let me know.

Thanks

B's Recorder Gold problem under Windows XP

I was using B's Recorder Gold under Windows 98 & the SONY 16/X10X/40X CD-RW was working fine.

When I installed Windows XP after removing Windows 98 & tried to install B's Recorder Gold, it showed errors on execution.

Could anybody advise whether update/patch is available & the alternate way to solve this problem.

Mani, S.

RE: Help please !! how i get a CDRW SONY working in XP

Before I upgraded from Windows ME to Windows XP Professional I backed up all my files with my CD-RW... it worked just fine; no problems whatsoever. ONE DAY LATER when I finished my upgrade, my CD-RW would not recognize my blank CD's. It keeps saying to insert a blank CD, even though one is in the drive. It will READ CD's, but will not burn.

When I reformatted (AGAIN) and installed ME again, and not XP Professional, it still would NOT work. I'm so aggravated by this. It is as if Microsoft XP fried my CD-RW!! I'm sooo pleased that I paid $200 for an upgrade to XP Professional that will end up making me costing me the purchase of a new CD-RW as well. Thanks a lot Microsoft!

Any suggestions whatsoever? Could the laser need cleaned? It's so strange! HELP!
