Hi Paul or anyone who can help, i am having for the most part, the exact same problem as Paul O. has mentioned.... CDA5 works fine until you go to burn , then locks up (for me its instant) and never progresses- you can press cancel, but it does nothing. That was with an ADAPTI CDR, now i put a USB Iomega in, and it does the SAME thing, then i noticed you have to switch the CDR id, so i did, but now as soon as i try anything with the Iomega USB (only in CDA5) the whole PC locks up for eternity? Paul, did you ever find a solution? I really like CDA, so i would love to keep using it, if i could. BTW- the ATAPI CDR was an MSI (generic) . Please help!
