      I'll bet it wouldn't work for me!

      So you're saying you are using Direct CD with CD-RWs and
      "rewriteable" CD-Rs as well? The latter system is reliable?

      I imagine I would have to pay for a copy of that :o( I'm not
      a Scot for nothing; it hurts me to pay money for anything,
      particularly for something that isn't likely to work.

        At the risk of going even further off topic, Stefan's comments were of interest
        to me as I have a laptop that has for some months refused to recognise any DVDs
        or write anything to CDs. It plays music CDs and reads data CDs, including
        homeomade ones, perfectly happily. I tried the suggestion below which appears to
        make no difference. Any other ideas?

        All the best,
