"The drivers that are included with this drive will cause a conflict with any other cd writing software you may have installed. There are some work arounds, but not very easy to do. The bonus software if installed on some Windows XP machines, and Windows 2000, will make the system unstable, cause problems for all of your cdroms including the DVD300I. The program HP memories disk creator installs a flaky driver called AFS2K.sys which can not be removed easily once installed. If you do remove it, all of the CDROMS stop working. It can be removed, but then of course the writing software stops working! I have contacted tech support about this, which HP does not want to admit there is a problem. If you do a Google search for AFS2K.SYS you will see that there are 1000's of computers that are having this same problem. Before buying make sure drivers have been fixed.
Basically a nice drive but without the drivers and support from HP, I would wait until this gets resolved."
I would sure consider returning it.
