|Off the top of my head, I don't know what the security settings were set at, but I can say that I never changed them from Norton's default settings. Also, when I put a CD in the drive, the autoplay/autorun changes the cursor to a few flashes of the small CD icon, my CD Rom drive fires up, but then, when I expect the prompt for "what do you want to do with this CD?", nothing happens.|
I believe, if Norton were treating the CD as a possible threat, the Norton pop-up window would show prompting me for permit/block instructions. It doesn't.
I have never had a problem with the cd burning software that came bundled on my Sony VAIO Rx660. Even when I uninstall the Norton products, the CD burning works perfectly. I've also installed Norton, uninstalled it, reinstalled it, and uninstalled it again - the CD functionality works beautiful every time when Norton is not installed.
Yes, I did say I used CD R/Ws - two of the same ones I use when I uninstall Norton (and they work fine then), and one brand new one (which also worked fine when I uninstalled Norton). When Norton is installed, I am not even presented with options for Erasing the Contents of the disc. When Norton isn't installed, all is well with my CD world.
Yes, I've tried CD R's, and the same "insert disc" message comes up.
This isn't a media problem.
Also, my PC has a DVD reader and a floppy drive, both of which I haven't tested. I will test their functionality when I get home tonight.
Thanks for your input.
