Fighting with Windows, again

So I added a new DVD/CD-RW drive to my thinkpad. Great peripheral. Since it ships with some little CD Burning software, I thought I would install my Roxio Easy CD Creator instead. Except it does not reconize the drive. Off to the Roxio website, downloaded an update. Run the update. And the update fails. Off to some research. Found this big issue with Easy CD Creator, a.k.a. ECDC. A standard install will most likely crash and possibly wipe out your system on Windows 2000 ! Luckily most of the issue is with the Take Two component, which I never installed. I think it is time to give up on ECDC and switch to Nero.
