Running under the Windows NT Operating System

NEC Computers recommends that you disable the Save-to-File power management feature
before writing to a CD. The CD-RW software running under Windows NT does not support
ACPI functions, and the system may go into a Save-to-File state even though the drive is busy.
Disable the Save-to-File feature before creating CDs under Windows NT.
If the system goes into a Save-to-File state during CD creation, the resulting CD will have
errors, and will have to be created again.
While the CD creation does resume once the system comes out of the Save-to-File state, the
message, "Errors reported by output device" appears, and the resulting CD does not function
For information on disabling the Save-to-File setting in Windows NT systems, see the BIOS
Setup sections of your user's guide.
