I just upgradesd to Win 2000 pro and now cd architect does not recognize my Omniwrite 26A or my Hp 9350i CD burners.
I can see them in other programs like CD Creator 5.
but the driver list does not see the Philips omniwrite or the HP. It does list other products like the Philips CDD drivers Rico and sony??? Any suggestions

Use "ATAPI MMC Compatible" and point to the controller/drive.

Those drives are not officially supported, but this may work:

Go to Options and click on "Select Drive". Now click the "Advanced" button on the lower right. Under the drive type menu, select either "SCSI MMC Compatible" or "ATAPI MMC Compatible" if the drive is not SCSI. Now pull down the SCSI Host menu, select option "0". Now pull down the SCSI CD-R menu and select your drive. If you do not see your drive, return to the SCSI Host menu and select option "1", and then pull down the SCSI CD-R menu and select your device.

I just built a new computer and have experimented with some components. I got CDA to work with a Yamaha "LightSpeed" 16-10-40 CD-RW. This is a SCSI device, though. The only "problem" with it is that it does not show the accurate "time to complete" a burn. Otherwise, it works FABULOUSLY! I burned a 63 minute CD in just 5 minutes! (16X burn speed.)

CDA also worked with a Sony "12x8x32" EIDE drive, but I frequently got buffer under-run errors. That's why I went to the SCSI system.

Here is the system I built:
PIII 866 mgz.
1.5 gig RAM (YES!)
90 gig EIDE HDD (1@30 gig, 1@60 gig)
Adaptec SCSI 2930 card (for the Yamaha CD-RW)
