I've had some encounters with B's Recorder Gold before. Once with an older version when installing a Sony CRX175A1 drive. B's wouldn't work with the drive :o Then I tried B's 5 on both my TDK 241040B and my Memorex 48MAXX and it worked with neither. I agree with Derek in that they do not update their software as often as they should. The Shellgate looks like a neat feature though.

Hey, it supports more writers than Easy CD Creator. :roll:

According to this list, it should support your TDK drive and the Memorex:

Support for the Memorex was added with version 5.06.

Darn, these lists that burner software sites have are always interesting. I see a Sony CRX205E1 on there! I want this firmware!!! :lol:

There is a 24x TDK drive on there, but my model; the Lite-ON LTR-24102B based 241040B is not on the supported list :cry:

Maybe I'll try a newer version of B's with my Memorex

Of the 3 drives I tried it on, it only worked on two. No go with an old Sony CRX100E. It worked with my Toshiba 1102 and 1202 combo drives.
