    Is your CDRW set as master or slave? some CDRW's will only work when set as master....

    The problem may also be w/ EasyCD. I've never used it, I'm a Nero guy myself, but I have known many a person who has had nothing but problems w/ EasyCD in XP....

    Also may want to check out compatability issues, a friend of mine had a Samsung burner that would not work w/ EasyCd b/c some Samsung burners were not supported on her version of EasyCD...I have no idea what version she was using.
