Do you have other programs that use the cd/dvd device? sometimes multiple programs will fight for rights to it.

go to the following link and download ccleaner

4) reboot your comp
5) reinstall i tunes

I have an Acer Extensa 4620Z and I am trying to burn a cd from itunes and am having much difficulty doing so. When I click to burn, it begins to start for about 1 second and then stops with the message:...


The problem with iTunes is that it uses its own/modifies the disc drive driver. What you can try is uninstall iTunes and performing what is called the Upper/Lower Filter Fix. This involves hitting "Start" and then selecting "Run" from the start menu. If that isn't in the Start menu, you can hold the Windows Key and hit 'R'. When the Run dialog box opens, type "regedit" in the box and click "OK" or "Run". This will open the Registry Editor window. Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SYSTEM, then CurrentControlSet, then Control, then Class. This should reveal a bunch of items with seemingly random characters in their name. Select the top most and arrow down until the item at the top in the right-side column says DVD/CD-ROM Drives. Below that, you should see two potential keys, LowerFilters and UpperFilters. Right-click on these and select Delete. Then, restart, and reinstall iTunes. It should correct the issue.

If you don't see it in the device driver, then it doesn't exist.

Go to the HP website and search for 'download drivers'... There will be a place where you can type in the driver you're looking for. Download and install. That should fix your problem.

This problem has nothing to do with itunes or filters.

The drivers not recognized when i install my iphone mobile as the problems giving by Appel itunes that my phone is not recognized


iTunes.exe has been set to run in compatibility mode for an older version of Windows. For best result, turn off compatibility mode of iTunes before you open it.

> 1. Make sure iTunes isn't running.
2. Click Start, type regedit, then press Enter.
3. Navigate to this Registry location:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers
4; Its better you clean/repair Windows registry with RegInOut.
4. Look in the main pane for a key that refers to iTunes. If you find one, delete it, then exit the Registry.
5. Start iTunes. The offending message should be gone!

I can open itunes and an error keeps poping up" roxio media manager" unable to find certificate file HELP


Hi there,

Here are some steps you can take to resolve your problem.

1. Download, install and run "Ccleaner"; a handy little temp file and registry cleaner/organizer. On many occassions, after running it, goofy messages disappear having been a result of faulty registry entries or deletions built up over time.

http://download.cnet.com/ccleaner/

2. Open Roxio and go to help> updates, and download and install any updates that are available.

3. Open iTunes and go to help. updates and do the same.

4. If you still see the message at this point, go to the control panel> programs, and uninstall Roxio. After restarting your computer, the message should be gone for sure. If you have the install disc for Roxio that came with your Dell, simply re-install it. If not, use Media Player to do your burning with, or any other of a vast number of free DVD/CD burners that can be easily downloaded and installed.

Good Luck

It's not "regeit" but "regedit".

Drives Disappear After You Install ITunes or Norton Ghost** If after installing ITunes or Norton Ghost, you get Device Manager error code, try locating the Audio File System (AFS) driver from Oak Technologies at C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\afs.sys or doing a search for it. Rename it afs.sys.txt and reboot. This driver is incompatible with the driver found in iTunes and Norton Ghost. The driver from these two companies is the same and made by a third company called Gear Software. After renaming the afs.sys driver file you will lose access to the CD burning feature of of the following: HP Memories Disc Creator, Liquid Audio Portal Player, Oak Technology SimpliCD, or Broderbund's Print Shop version 20. If you still wish to use the burning feature in any of that software, upgrade it to a Vista versions. For more information, see the article here - http://www.gearsoftware.com/wiki/index.php?title=CD/DVD_drives_disappear_after_installing_iTunes.

Description of Code 10-related errors that Device Manager generates in Windows-based computers 
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943104/

Please do all the below even if you have done some before as it is often the total process which solves the issue.

Try this - Control Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click the device - Driver's Tab - click
Update Drivers (this will likely do nothing) - then RIGHT CLICK the drive - UNINSTALL - REBOOT 
this will refresh the default driver stack.

Then work your way through these - remember the drive could be bad, could have a loose cable or
slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then check cables in both

data contacts with a pencil eraser.

Some DVD drives do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the System maker and
device maker to see if there is firmware or drivers for you drive if needed.
