Incorrectly recognizing Plextor CD-RW as CD-R
Hi all,

For some reason, Vista is recognizing my SCSI Plextor 40/12/40S CD-RW
drive as a "PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W4012S". So, I can use it as a CD-R in Vista
and Media Player, but not as a CD-RW (i.e. I can't erase discs or use
rewritable discs). It definitely does have CD-RW capabilities because I
can use it as such in Nero, and have used it in XP to do the same.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks,
Matt.

There aren't any drivers... it's a drive attached to an SCSI controller,
so the SCSI controller driver is all I need.

Re: Incorrectly recognizing Plextor CD-RW as CD-R
There may not be drivers for the Plextor but have you checked for their
firmware updates -- those affect recognition of media.

They are up to version 1.04 now and I see:

Version 1.03 Download (File Size: 467KB) Date posted: July 18, 2003

Added support for newer CD-R/RW media.

The firmware updates are cumulative.

If you are scsi connected (I have a fair amount on board) check out
this Adaptec website if you are using Adaptec controllers and see if
your card is supported in VISTA:

http://adaptec-tic.adaptec.com/cgi-
bin/adaptec_tic.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?
p_faqid=14790&p_created=1160005296&p_sid=GNBSt-
ui&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWR zb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9
MTM0JnBfcHJvZHM9MTMyLCx2Mj4mcF9jYXRzPTAmcF9wdj0yLj E0MyZwX2N2PSZwX3NlYXJ
jaF90eXBlPWFuc3dlcnMuc2VhcmNoX25sJnBfcGFnZT0x&p_li =&p_topview=1

Sorry about the URL -- if it does not work when you click on it, try
clicking on the last line and if that does not work go to the Adaptec
website / Support / Scsi software /

http://www.adaptec.com/en-US/support...SPI/ASPI-4.70/

and click on the link at << See all Knowledgebase articles Windows ASPI
Package View articles >> Then select the first listing.
