I have a Toshiba Quosimo that uses RecordNow to burn CDs. It will not take a regular CD. I have uninstalled the drive and reinstalled it. I also downloaded a new driver and attempted to install that, but when I go to find new hardward, it automatically installs the old drivers as well. Any ideas? Thanks!

Thanks for the help. Sorry I didn't do this sooner, but this is a work computer, so I didn't have access to it over the weekend.

Looks like it from here, it is a DVD/CD re-writable drive. Looks like you can only play CDs. Perhaps you could also burn to CD-RWs, but only certain CD-Rs will work. It is all about experimenting with what CD-Rs will work.

Back when CD re-writable drives came out, they could use most manufacturer's discs.

But then, DVD/CD re-writable drive came out, they could only accept certain manufacturer's discs.
