I have a Creative 2xDVD drive- it's been working great for 2 years now, CALV I had trouble getting it to read DVDs at first, too- it ended up being a problem with DOS compatibility mode "drivers" I was using at the time- autoexec.bat was still loading the MSCDEX from my old CD-ROM, and when it went to load the DVD MSCDEX, it couldn't. And, of course, all this was hidden by Windows' wonderful splash screen so I never knew there was even a problem... Problem solved by remming out the toshiba line from autoexec.bat/config.sys and letting the DVD MSCDEX load. If you're using bus mastering, this doesn't apply to you. I had no problems with this drive on my new mobo w/bus mastering.
