Re: Help with Windows problem (not burning CDs)

I think before unplugging and all that it may make sense to see if the drive is being recognized upon pc start, it should show up as part of the DOS window when you start your PC. If you know how to get into your PC's Bios you can also check there. If it doesn't show up there check if all wires are con nected, to the drive as well as the motherboard. If it still doesn't show you can see if you can connect it to a different IDE port (you should have 2). I assume its a normal IDE drive? If it still doesn't show its most likely the drive itself. Also have a look if it still shows under the drives within windows. If it does and works fine there its most likely the software you burn with, if it doesn't and all wires are good its most likely the drive.
