Which connections do I use to hook it up?

When you break into the computer (disconnected from power, please), the sockets on the back of the burner will only fit a couple of plugs (power and data) - just inspect it closely, don't force the data plug as it goes in only one way. Same for the power plug. Some burners have a little two conductor small plug that hooks up to some sound cards. In most cases you can leave this off if you don't have instructions with your burner. Good luck.

A few things you can try:

Carefully check that the ribbon cable is firmly seated in the IDE slot on the motherboard.

Perhaps try a new ribbon cable.

Hook up the burner by itself (unplug the power and the ribbon cable from the other CD) Make sure that the burners jumper setting is for cable select or try master and also make sure that the burner is at the end of the ribbon cable not in the center connection

Hope this helps.

you may need to check to see if you have a CD writeble Rom, open up the computer to see if the cd rom cord is in all the way. I would put a DVD rewriteable in the computer new ones come with the software. you may need a driver.
you may only have a CD rom, and you need a CD writer to burn songs. A DVD writer can burn CD's and DVD's

Check H/W?

sounds like a problem with the internal disk drive, could be damaged and may need replacing... if its still within the warranty return it for repair or replacement.

Cannot burn CD from Kodak Easyshare Software

If you are using the Pro version of XP, it will burn your photos to the CD itself. As I recall, this didn't work in the Home version of XP, but you could try it. Simply drag and drop the photos onto the burner drive from within Windows Explorer. Once they are all there, I think there's a menu item which tells XP to perform the burn and eject the disk. All that assumes that the burner is working OK on your machine
