Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
My cd burner is installed and was working great. my son downloaded itunes for his ipod. ever since then when i go to burn a cd, windows media player says to "install a burner and restart the player." i checked the properties of the burner and my computer says it is working properly. now i can burn cd's thru nero. so the burner does work. just not thru windows media player anymore. nero is a lot slower of a process. i would really prefer to burn it thru windos. what went wrong.
This does indeed seem to be the well documented upper & lower filters issue that nliwilson has posted the fix for. It's worth noting that if you follow the instructions nliwilson has provided a link to you can usually just delete both filters and restart your PC rather than editing them, when windoze restarts it'll (hopefully) repair the registry by reasserting the default values. Obviously as Microsoft know about as much about building a good OS as pigeons know about building a fire engine windoze will do what it's supposed to about 7 times out of 10.
photofreakoo, good on you for trying but think about it, even when you have your default printer set up you can still use your other printers by selecting them from the list, they don't just stop working.
In exactly the same way regardless what your default burning software is you can still use other burning software ad-hoc (registry issues not withstanding obviously!).

Not seen this issue for a while, updating you're CD burning software from the vendors web-site is sometimes enough, as affected CD burning programs where patched to resolve it.
But if not Apple have plain-English instructions for fixing this issue in Windows XP here http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=302976
