I have the Mitsumi Rewriter for ATAPI. It is connected as Master to the secondard IDE port. No slave present.
It works correctly as a cd drive, but when trying to write cd-r it doesnt write, and quits at the first block.
What could be the problem?
Sys is win98, pentium II, recent Mainboard

1) It may be set as master, but some devices have a special jumper setting if it's "alone" on the bus... Check again.

2) You're SURE you loaded the right drivers?  :-)  Have to ask.

What app are you using to burn?  EZ-CD Creator, or some other one?  What version?

I would also check for a firmware update for your burner and an update to your burning software.  Those can do wonders.

My brother had thiskind of problem. He found that it was a problem withthe drivers and software he was using. Try removing them and then adding them. If you have a Creative CD-Rom drive on the system I think that there are some incompatibilities. Espescially with the infra drives.

I solved the problem myself.
It was in the settings of Win98
DMA had to be off, Automatic notif. on change too.
That did it
