I use the "pause" button onmy keyboard. You can read my post a couple up from here I am no fooling around with the DVD problem any more, I just dumped my Win 7RC and reinstalled it, now I have both my DVD drives showing.

My real big problem is I cannot get my printers to work with my Win 7R computer, that is why I started a new post.

Thanx....Gunny.... 8 computers WOW
Yeah a bunch of old P-IV's. what's your printer problem?
