I have a Mitsumi cd burner installed on windows 2000. It
works fine but the problem I have is that I have different
software that needs to see a cd writer to run. Since
windows only sees my burner as a cd-rom my software only
sees it as a cd-rom. There are no device drivers for my
burner to make windows recognize it as a burner, it just
runs from the Nero software. Does anyone know how I could
get windows to see this device as a cd writer or does
anyone know of a burner that has software to make windows
see it as a burner and not just a cd-rom?????
Thanks in advance for any input you can give me.

If Nero can see it (and write to it) then any other CD writing software
will also be able to (subject to about 1000 caveats).

You need to clarify two things:

1. Can Nero see it and write to it?
2. What is the make/version of this "other" software?
