    As far as I know any cd drive you were to buy today would be able to play cd-rw's no problem
    I know a few of the older ones can not though...

    One of the great mysteries of our time.
    Most new computers come with a floppy, too...another puzzler.

    I think floppy drives are still around for the soul purpose of the good ol boot disks...

    yes that could be it. a lot of people (me included) still havent found a way to make a cd-rom bootdisk. I know its possible, and probably very easy, but im just too lasy to find out. Besides, with windows xp, and all future windows releases, bootdisks are completely unnecessary.
