When you try something you dont have a plugin for, it should give you a link to their page with all the plugins and you can pay and download them from there.

I just burned some CDs with Sonic Record Now, seems WMP 11 is the problem, but, whenever I use the CD Burning Wizard to burn files straight from the folder, it won't recognize my blank CDs either....wierd...at least I can use Record Now and finally listen to some new music in my car....

I'd have to be extremely desperate to go to a tech. Theres no problem a tech can fix that you cant.

If the drive shows up in the hardware manager in control panal, then its definately software, all the components of media player are plugins and most come with nero. Nero comes with all the MP plugins and codecs and when I have a problem like this reinstalling nero or another plugin pack will fix it.

Just keep crossing all these suggestions off your list and if all fails, THEN go to a tech.

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.

Re: Help with Windows problem (not burning CDs)

did it work before? if so...

turn off the PC and unplug the drive (two cords - one 4 prong power and one the IDE connector)

then power back on (no drive)

then shutdown and plug the drive back in... upon boot that might recognize the drive.

last resort is google the drive and update the firmware... you could also always try burning with nero to see if it's a software issue... glen

I think you may have to re-install the drivers then, go on HP's website or you may be able to do it via the add hardware wizard.
