Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When opening iTunes I receive this warning ''The registry setting used by iTunes drivers for importing and burning CDs and DVDs are missing. This can happen as a result of installing other CD burning software. Please reinstall iTunes.'' Since then the CD drive does not recognise music CD and video CD. It can however read programs on CD as well as all DVDs. I have done the iTunes reinstallation, restored my computer to an earlier time and even gone through system recovery. I went on line for solution and was told to go to the registry and delete upper and lower filters. I did it but the problems persist but the problem is not solved. I remember this started around a period that I installed Nero and Ashampoo softwares. I therefore uninstalled them but still no solution.

Try turning off your antivirus and/or anti spyware programs before installing i-Tunes. I had a customer where SpySweeper kept i-Tunes from loading.

Hi gokay45,
I suggest you take a look at this knowledge base article to completely uninstall all of iTunes and Quicktime, and then install a fresh copy.

Itunes drivers for importing and burning CDs/DVDs missing where can i get them? Bill


It seems that some users installing iTunes 8 on Windows systems are encountering an error message:

“ERROR: The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning cds and dvds are missing… Please re-install iTunes”

iTunes uses GEAR software drivers for importing and burning CD’s & DVD’s. Re-installing (or installing the latest GEAR drivers seems to fix this problem. No reboot required for this install.

You can get the current GEAR drivers here: http://www.gearsoftware.com/support/drivers.cfm

If this does not fix your problem download a fresh installer for iTunes here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

Uninstall iTunes, reboot, & then do a fresh install of iTunes.

Hope This Help You
