"The built-in Windows 2000 drivers for CD-R, CD-RW, and DVD-R devices treat them as read-only devices".
NOTE: "No version of Microsoft Windows to date (Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows NT, Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows 95, or Microsoft Windows 3.x) natively supports the ability to write to CD-R, CD-RW, or DVD-R devices. Writing to (or "burning") these devices requires third-party drivers and software in Windows 2000."
The following third-party software is known to support Windows 2000, but you should check with the manufacturer for proper version and updated software.
