I need to burn a CD from time to time (it's an Ebay requirement that you can't sell E-books without physically mailing a CD; I don't know the reason for that in this day and age but...) so when the drive in my desktop gave out I bought an Iomega external RW drive for a few bucks that is fairly old but works fine. I can read disks but it won't recognize a blank disk or give me the option of burning it. I'd like to be able to figure out how to use it so I don't have to spend money on a new one, since I don't need it for anything else. I have Windows 7 installed and I'm wondering if that might be the problem. I might try installing XP on an old laptop to see if that solves it but I wanted to ask first. I can't find Iomega drivers anywhere for download so I'm just using the Windows automatic driver install. I thought at first that it might be a ROM drive but it does say "Re-writable" on the case. Is there something else I might try to do t make it write?
