Re: CD-Rom drive won't read mini CDs
I figured it out - though it's a most bizarre solution. When I reinstalled applications I left off the Roxio Easy CD Creator. I never used it, so I figured "why clutter up things" Then, when reading something in the hardward documentation I saw a note about how my CD drive wouldn't work properly in an NT environment without Roxio. Now, even though I've got Win XP on this machine, I figured...I'll give it a try. Turns out that was it. There must be something that program enables - a driver inside the software? - so that it can read mini CD-Rs. Because according to the hardward documentation, those mini disks aren't compatible with this CD-RW drive otherwise. I never would have known, since I never had a problem viewing the mini disks before this happened.
Osprey - thanks for helping me troublshoot.
