Because this situation has a variety of causes, no one solution will work in every case. To resolve the problem, try each of the following solutions.
On some computers, Ghost may take longer to identify and list the CD-R or CD-RW drive than for other drives in Ghost's Destination Drive window. To be sure this is not the problem, wait five minutes or more for the drive to appear in the list.
Update the firmware for the CDR-RW drive. This has fixed the problem for some drives, such as the Acer 6206A CD-RW drive.
Ghost might be having difficulty detecting the drive with the particular physical configuration on the computer. For instance, if the drive is connected as a slave on the primary controller, switching it to a master on the secondary controller, or the reverse, might resolve the problem.
Copy the file Oakcdrom.sys to the boot floppy disk, and add the line device=oakcdrom.sys to the file Config.sys on the boot floppy disk. Then start the computer with the boot floppy disk and run Ghost.
If reading from the CDR/RW drive and not writing to the drive, load the DOS driver for the CDR/RW drive from the boot floppy disk and do not load the file OakCDrom.sys.
