Aloha experts!!!
Hope you can help me with this problem...
I have a iomega Predator CD-RW 24x 10x 40x drive connected to a P2 300MHz computer.  Upon arrival at my desktop, everthing appears to be working properly.  I check my system performance and it displays a message stating that my system is running at optimal performance.
However, upon running any software that needs to read the CD-RW disk within my Predator (such as windows explorer), a message is displayed within system performance stating that the Predator drive "is using MS-DOS mode compatibility file system".  I have upgraded my chipset software and have upgraded Predator's driver using a module provided at iomega's website.  I have also cleared my autoexec.bat and config.sys files and have made sure that no other CD writing software (besides HotBurn which is the software that is provided by iomega) or disk tool software loads upon startup.  All of the devices are working properly.  Please help!!!
