Windows 2000 problem with Yamaha 4416S SCSI CD-RW

The system used is dual boot, Windows 2000 and Windows 98 SE (with all recommended service packs).  Everything is working smoothly, after having had grreat help from the experts here, in repairing Windows 2000 to dual boot properly.

The system has a Yamaha 4416S SCSI internal CD-RW drive (and a second internal SCSI CD-ROM), and works fantastic in Windows 98 (read, drag and drop, burn).

Prior to the repairing of Windows 2000 (for dual boot), 2000 recognized my CD-RW drive, giving me access to read from CD-ROMS and CD-RWs - but not to write them (I hear 2000 doesn't support write access for my drive).

The current recommend Firmware is installed for the CD-RW.

After the Windows 2000 repair, I cannot access any of my CD-RWs, only regular CD-ROMS with the CD-RW drive.  The following errors occur;

1. When any CD-RW is in the CD-RW drive and accessed in Explorer (the CD-RW icon looks fine and indicated as a CD-ROM, not a CD-RW)

K:\ is not accessable
Incorrect Function

2. When using the Control Panel (it says the device is working fine) to update/uninstall the driver;

Windows could not load the installer for CD ROM
(I press OK and continue to have Windows look for a driver - I'm told Windows can't find one)

3. When using the Control Panel to uninstall the drive;

Failed to Uninstall the device.  The device may be required to boot the computer.


My CD-RW behaves perfectly in Windows 98, but not at all in Windows 2000.

Any help on this matter are most appreciated.  As well - can anyone point me in the right direction to perhaps get Windows 2000 to allow me to burn CDs?

Have you reinstalled the burning software you're using under Win2K to provide burning services?

Thank you both for your input.

SysExpert, thank you for directing me to some specific resources on the web.

I ended up using an Adaptec UDF, which gives me access to my CD RW.

I have yet to come across a utility specific to my Yahmaha 4416S that is like Adaptec Direct CD.
