My Sanyo CDR S16 6x CD-ROM which came on my Gateway 2000 in 1996 won't accept a CD-RW written on a modern PC. Is there a firmware upgrade or perhaps it may be a media problem. Does anyone know.

If you have a burner sometimes all you need to do is update the driver on it to have it recognize newer CD formats..there is also software that can help.

For instance if you buy something like:

Nero- it will install and at the same time it will update the drivers on your CD burner\

EZCD creator 5 or higher- would do the same thing

hot burn- same thing..
