This occurred with my old CD drive and software and with the new setup, with
both CD-R's and RW's:
When I first insert a CD, the window saying that Direct CD is ready comes up.
This continues with as many CD's as I insert.
But if I insert a CD which was previously inserted -- without rebooting -- the
Direct CD splash screen doesn't appear.
With the old setup and CD-R's, this lead to problems (mentioned in my first
post) for which I had to use CD scandisk, and the data didn't record... and the
CD became corrupted. (There was also a CD-RW which lost all its data, but I
don't remember the circumstance.)
With the new setup, I seem to be able to record on CD-RW's after inserting them
again before rebooting. I don't know about the CD-R's; I still have a couple of
CD-R's that I'm using with Direct CD, but I don't re-insert them w/o rebooting.
Thanks again for any feedback.
