comment Command-line FTP function does not work
By default windows firewall include ftp.exe in its exception but only for home/work network. Make sure you are not on public network else allow ftp for public network as well.

comment Identify if optical drive in my laptop is SATA or PATA in Windows 7
Thanks for the detailed reply! I do have SATA controller in device manager: snag.gy/PA7ra.jpg . And SATA II or not matters because I want to replace DVD-ROM with a SSD caddy. So just want to know beforehand the speed I should expect and if SSD will be beneficial or not. I tried some 3rd part S/Ws and they reported SATA-II for HDD. I think DVD interface will also be SATA-II then?

I tried this one and it said ATAPI for the DVD Rom..so is ATAPI = SATA? The reason why I need to know is that because I am looking to plug in a SSD caddy inplace of DVD-ROM..so just want to be sure that SSD will get good read/write speed in that case.

comment Dvd write fails on windows 7 works great on windows XP
I have tried lots of softwares, windows 7 built in burn, imgBurn, cdBurnerXP..none of them works. I dont think it ever worked in windows 7. If its a firmware issue then it shouldnt be working even in XP..right?
