Thanks for the reply. The funny thing is, I was just looking at that
line :)..but I thought the 6 and 4 where write speeds to any CD media
and the 32 was read. Thanks for the clarification. I was messing
around in my computer the other day before all this started and was
worried that I hooked something up wrong. I was going to start taking
things apart....thank god for this mailing list!!
Thanks for the help. Now I just have to convince my wife that we need a
new cd-burner :).
