Need help w/ Philips CDRW-2412 install @ Win2K

Postby fanglemeister on Thu Feb 20, 2003 3:21 pm

Recently upgraded my machine to Win2KPro OS, I need a driver or installer for a Philips CDRW-2412A; none of the usual sources have
this, the W98 installer from Philips on CD doesn't work, system crashed when running installer. :evil:
Is there any hope of getting this Philips drive to work or should I give it the flotation test and buy something else? (This was only $60 at walmart so no great loss I guess).

Does Windows see the drive at all?

Or are you having problems installing the bundled software?

Windows is seeing the drive and is calling it a CDRW2412A but unfortunately is treating it as a plain old read-only CDROM drive, none of the usual burning software I have tried installing recognizes it as a CDRW writer. The driver is the standard windows cdrom driver.

I had one of these drives (CDD6611 or similar IIRC). Nero 5.5.7.0 and later (possibly earlier as well) will recognise this drive as a writer.

Curious though, I never had any problems with this drive being recognised. It was never the greatest of burners (although it wasn't that bad either) but everything seemed to recognise it.
