I have DDS9 and I wanted to burn a bootable CD. I searched these forums for some advice but every bit of what I find does nothing to fix the problem. I just did a clean install of windows and installed all my software about four days ago, and now I want to burn a bootable cd. I tried: burning in safe mode. unchecking the "enable cd recording on this drive" leaving the CD drawer open with the disk inserted I not only got the error when trying to burn the CD, but when I removed the check in the "enable cd recording on the drive" I would get the error that says E:\ is not accessable. I rechecked the "enable cd recording on this drive" but still get the error when trying to burn, either in safe mode or regular user mode. The box of CD-RW's has five in the box and I just bought them. I did notice that after I attempted to make the first burn, the CD-RW was no longer blank but showed that about 17 MB's had been recorded but I get a blank window when I try to get windows to read the contents of the disk. Has anyone else here run into this?
