Question about Intervideo WinDVD 4.0 for PC

Drive will not recognize cd r or play audio cd

When we first installed the drive, it did everything the product was promised to do. We were able to save pictures, music and other files on re-writable discs. Now the drive will not see the disc's nor see the disc's we have already created from said drive. I have unintalled and reinstalled the software and I get nothing. Can anyone help. I never registered once installing the drive and I don't think I can any support from the manufacturer because the drive is a couple of years old. What do we do.

Re: drive will not recognize cd r or play audio cd

Since you didn't specify brand: As a tech I've got to say, remove and reconect data and power cables (while comp is off) both drive and mother board ends on the data cable. If you smoke or have pets, run a cd cleaning disk.

Error message when logging into ITunes and audio will not play. "Itunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/video playback may not operate properly." I have searched...

you should uninstall audio drivers then install the updated drivers for your audio.

then un-install iTunes and its all apple product using revo un-installer. that will ask to remove all the registry so while uninstalling the programme select all and delete them.

then download and install latest iTunes.

it will start working.

if it doesn't you can restore your computer to a previous date on which your itunes was working properly.

to do so.

click on Start >>>All Programms>>> Accessories>>System Tools>> System Restore>> Select the Date and Restore your Computer.

Product is Roxio Easy CD & DVD Burning. We put the cd in the drive, we get lights on the drive, we get hard drive disk activity but no installation program comes up. We tried turning off Norton AV,...

Most probably the CD does not have the autoun function or the autorun is no functioning. If you need to install the software, open the Windows Explorer and click on the drive for the CD and on the Explorer right side plane double click the "setup" installer and the installation should run.

Hope it helps.

I want to burn Windows Media Audio/Video file to a cd so i could play it to a cd player

put a blank cd in your drive and make a playlist in window media player and open the copy to cd dialog and copy your contents. You can also go for 'nero' for the same purpose which is more easy and better.

Have widows xp. after using itunes, many registry

Sounds like you may have some registry issues, more than an iTunes or Explorer issue.

Check out this program - Amust Registry is a great tool for fixing registry problems. It is a fee-charged software, but I think I only paid $20 or so for it. It looks like it is free on the site, but it will make you pay to actually fix everything.

I've used it for YEARS and never had a problem with it; however, make sure to put the Check Mark in BACK UP MY STUFF BEFORE FIXING IT, just in case. :)

ITunes registry error/CD-DVD not being recognized

I had the same problem with iTunes and installing the GEAR driver fixed it. If the drive itself is disappearing then the problem is probably more than iTunes. Try updating the actual CD driver at the Dell Support Page then install the GEAR driver again.
