    please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi
    I have just got a philips cd writer model cdd 4401 (i know it's old), well here is my problem, i can't erase a samsung 4x-10x re-writable cd and by the way the cd case says that only fast cd writers should be used with this cd, well my cd writer is a 4x4x32 i don't know if that is fast enough for the disc 'cause i have read that some old writers can't write on newer re- writable cds and i would like if someone could tell me what is the problem here.
    is my drive too old? or there is another problem?.
    I have tried nero and the windows xp cd burning program.
    i have also been experiencing some windows froozing (apparently is the cd writers fault). well what can i do about that?.
    will it help if i download the sp1 for windows xp?.
    will it help if i install the aspi drivers?
    should i update the firmware of my drive?
    If so...
    how do i do it?


    oohh and the only time i have tried burning a regular cdr the pc froozed, i was using a a cd burning program with a dragon on it (i forgot it's name).

    If applicable,
    Update the burning software in use.
    Update the firmware in use.

    Instructions should be available via their respective downloads/website.

    Cheers.
