Check the Manufacturer's website for a Download of the CD Drive Drivers. If you have a Software recovery application on your computer (Many HP and Dell Computers have this) the drivers may already be on your system, you may just need to re-install them. If re-installing the driver's doesn't work, I don't know what to tell you, unless your drive has gone bad.

My Compaq Presario desktop will not burn CDs


Hi,
Perform a system restore and take the computer back to a time before the problems started with burning, or you can download a different media player and try burning with that, real player as a good bit of software to use for burning and Nero is too (Nero is a devoted burning suite)

Get real player here >>>>>>

Get Nero 9 here >>>>>>

When i try to burn a cd windows media player says connect a burner and restart


If you are running nero or Roxio then disable it first. Roxio takes over the burning capabilities exclusively. You will also have to reset the device to allow WINDOWS to burn CD's. Also make note that amediplayer burns WMA files that some players won't read.

Media player says that it cant find the burner


I guess you have a Read-Only drive - ROM. You need a CD/DVD RW drive for burning.

My cd burner is not working


hi, the problem is either the system is not detecting the CDRW,, if u can see the drive in the device manager, then try cleaning the lens, if its not in the device manager, check the BIOS, or unplug the drive out of the slot and clean the contacts and plug it back in carefully, let me know

Burned CD's won't play in auto CD player


I had the problem of burned CD's not playing in my car. I used a CD-R and burned it at "slow" burn rate. Now I don't have a problem with playing the cd's in my car player. Try it, it worked for me.
