    It is all because roxio (formerly adaptec) insist on trying to use their own drivers to communicate with the cd-rw, instead of the standard aspi drivers. Which is strange considering that adaptec virtually wrote the book on aspi drivers.
    There is no good reason to use non-standard drivers except
    1) to gain a tiny improvement in performance.
    2) to block software from other vendors.

    I stopped using roxio for that very reason.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
