My program won't recognize my samsung CD-R/RW SW-208B any more. I have adaptec's easy cd creator 4.0 and now it says "no supported cd-r/rw drive" It worked before...
Can anybody help me out?

well you best reinstall it.......also be aware that SOME cdrw drives like the software installed BEFORE the drive others like it the other way around....lol

also check your device manager for errors.........
controlpanel/system/device manager

drcspv suggestion to reinstall Easy CD Creator is sound. Try also to get ECC update at Roxio -manufacturer - site. And dont forget to check cable contacts.

I updated easy cd creator 4.3 to 4.5 and no change
I reinstalled a new cd creator and still nothing!
My burner is fine, and I still can't understand why the software doesn't work!
