I desperately want to burn an iso image to a CD-RW. Not that much to ask, right? Anyway, my computer, a Dell Dimension 8200, has two drives: a CD-RW and a CD/DVD-ROM. First, I thought "Why not, let's put it into the DVD-ROM!" Well, the image burning software obviously didn't even read the drive, brcause a ROM doesn't write. Simple, I know.
So I moved the blank CD (I know it's blank because I pulled it off the fresh stack myself) to the lower of the two drives, the CD-RW drive. Now, before now, the drive was contentedly shut. After I put the CD in it and pressed the close button, the light blinked for about 15 seconds and then slid back open again.
When I pull the CD out again, it closes just fine and dandy. I've tried disabling/enabling the drive, I've tried removing everything from around the drive that I could without taking the thing apart. I tried brute force, but that didn't work.
All I want is an iso image disk. Can anyone shed some light on the situation?
