  1. i had a cdr cdrw drive installed in my computer (hp ME) when i try to copy files i get a error message of "no supported cdr/cdrw drive" I can copy music files but I can't copy data (picture files) . The person who installed it hasn't called me back in 8 weeks. I think he forgot to give me the software disk for it. It's an {utmost internal eide cdr/cdrw drive. 52x24x52}

    also when I try to load programs I get an error message of "windows installer
    unexpected termination" "the I/O operation has beed aborted because of thread exit or an application request"
    I would really appreciate any help.
    thanks for your time.

    Welcome to TechSpot

    Tell us a bit more about your PC and what is on it (use my.TS.forum top-left)
    Do you have a program like Nero or EasyCD or the likes?
    With XP, some sort of burning software is included in the OS, in any others you need to install it separately.

    Nero and Adaptec are mortal enemies on the same machine.You should commit to one program .Then completely uninstall the other (Nero has clean up tools,definitey clean the registry )
    You might find an Aspi layer issue when you are done the uninstall but both websites have tools to fix that.
