    Tonight I bought the above CD-RW at my Local store. I just couldn't pass up the price.
    Now the box says the model is CRX185A1 but it shows up in Windows XP as CRX1851E1.
    I can't get Easy Cd Creator to recognize the drive. I've reinstalled the software, got the latest updates... everything I can think of. I also have Nero and it found the drive just fine... so I'm not sure what the problem is. I had the exact problem with my old Cd RW drive. Easy CD couldn't find it till one day it did. Never figured out how I fixed it that time either.

    How do you have the drives phyiscally configured? Master? Slave? Cable Select?

    Might be an issue with that, or it could just be Easy CD being a pain in the ass (which it is anyway, really).

    Nevermind. Found a Drive Update and it works fine now. What a pain though.
