Hi all hardware experts.
I just get myself a new sony cd rw crx175e.  I try to use adaptec cd creator 5 and nero 5.0.3.1 to burn cd(s), but they cannot detect the avalability of my burner. It working fine as a cd rom though.  any solution?

NB: The cd rw does not come with it own software.

Did you update your copy of Roxio Easy CD Creator to the latest verion?  I think that V5.02d is current.

I assume you are using some version of Windows:  How does the drive appear in 'Device Manager'?  Is the correct make and model listed there?

Commented:
It may be too new.  I got a Sony CD-RW a while back and had to wait for some CD writing programs to add support for the new drive

You can contact tech support for the company who wrote your burning software.  In my case it was a mp3 to cd burning program and they said they were working on it and would contact me when they had support for it.  A couple of days later they e-mailed me a patch and it worked fine.  Somewhere in the documentation or on the manufacturer's website there should be a list of supported writing devices

I don't even see a Sony CRX 175E on Sony's page (http://sony.storagesupport.com/cdrw/index.htm )

I see a 1750U and a 175A1 and 175M, but no E.  Is this an OEM drive?

I did find the CRX-175E on Nero's page, you need to upgrade to Nero v5.5.4.5 available at www.nero.com.
