Thanks for the prompt reply.
Firstly, the error should read as follows:
"Invalid device request reading drive D". I assume D refers to any drive(s) found by Ghost - in this case drive K.
The fact that it recognises their existence after aborting is odd.
Secondly, the version of Ghost is 2003. It used to start from Win98SE & then boot to DOS, load the drivers & find my (then only) CD-RW drive.
I agree with your comments re. LG products, although I have found them quiet & reliable. When they were originally GoldStar, I wouldn't have touched them. Then again, I wouldn't touch DELL, IBM, COMPAQ, etc.
The question remains, why doesn't Ghost 2003 recognise my DVD-RW under Win XP Pro, when it used to under Win98SE?
