Not sure what OS you have, have you tried removing the drive in the device manager, and then restarting your machine to see if your OS reports new hardware? Or have you tried removing the new memory and restarting the system to see if you problem goes away? I might try this first.

Was anything else attempted or unplugged when installing the new memory?

Need install cd burner in windows xp


IDE or SATA connections ??????
To enable CD burning for your computer is a relatively simple process in Windows XP.
All you need is a CD burner drive installed in your computer, the disk with the drivers and software that goes with it and an XP-loaded personal computer.
Once your driver is installed, the process is almost automatic.
Here are the steps you should follow to begin creating your own CDs.

Check your system requirements before installing the CD burner and make sure that your system can handle the speed and memory requirements of the drive.
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.
Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards
Turn off the computer, disconnect the power cord and remove the cover from the case.
Check the IDE cables inside your computer.
You may be able to connect the optical CD drive to the same ribbon cable as the hard drive if it is set up as a secondary or slave drive or to a separate ATA/IDE channel by a second cable.
Find an empty CD drive slot, remove the plastic cover from the outside, slide the drive in through the back and screw it in place.
If you are using a SATA CD burner, you'll need to connect the red SATA cable from the CD drive to the SATA connection on the motherboard or on your SATA drive controller card.
With SATA drives, you don't have to fool with jumpers.
Attach one end of the separate ATA/IDE cable to the motherboard if you have an IDE drive and the other to the back of the CD burner.
If slaving the drive, hook the drive to the second connection on the main hard drive cable to the burner drive.
If you do that, you'll have to set the jumpers on the CD drive to the "slave" position.
The drive's installation instructions will show you where the jumper pins are and how to set them to the slave position.
If using a separate IDE cable, just leave the jumpers in the factory setting.
If this is an older drive, you may have an analog audio cable as well that connects to the motherboard.
Follow the installation instructions for hooking it up.
Close the case and reconnect the power cord and other cables.
Turn on the computer and let it boot up.
Open the "My Computer" folder and make sure there is a new icon for the drive that you just installed.
XP will generally recognize it automatically, but if it doesn't you'll have to reboot the computer and open the CMOS setup program.
Follow the instructions for your particular PC to open the CMOS window.
Check the ATA channels to make sure both are enabled in setup and that, if you are using a master/slave setup, that the CMOS selections match that setup.

Reboot the system.
If the CMOS settings are correct, the XP operating system will set your drive so that it uses either digital CD playback (no audio cable) or analog playback (with audio cable). To check, open the "My Computer" window, choose "Properties" then "Hardware" then "Device Manager".
You'll see a "DVD/CD-ROM Drives" icon.

Click the plus sign next to DVD/CD-ROM Drives folder.
Click it, then right-click the icon for the new CD burner drive.
Now choose "Properties".
If you don't have an audio cable, left click on the selection box for "Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM device".

Insert the CD burner software disk that came with your CD burner.
Insert the disk that came with the drive into the CD drive and install the software following the prompts.
If the drive doesn't come with CD burner software, Windows XP comes with a lite version of Roxio's Easy CD Creator that detects blank CDs.
Just insert a blank CD in the burner and XP offers you a "burn CD" option when you have autoplay set up for the CD-drive.

There are lots of freeware burning software on the internet.

I went to burn a cd and it says my burner or software is not found


Remove the device in device manager and re-boot the computer and let it detect and install the drivers again. This usually fixes the problem unless the drive itself is bad.

DVD-RW burn drive is being recognized as CD-rom drive; it's not the laser, because I went through the trouble of purchasing a brand new DVD burner drive and it's doing the same exact thing. Can anybody...


Hello,

If you have not done so, under device manager, remove the dvd rom (cd-rom) from the hardware list, Use the CD install disk that come with your DVD-ROM, install the drivers and software, then reboot your pc and let it install the new hardware detected. This should get you going.

Good Luck

Media player cannot detect burner anymore


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.
