1. Click Start - Run - type SERVICES.MSC
2. Find the IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service
3. Double-click the Service and change the Startup Type to Automatic and
click Start button and there you go.

According to me, by default the Startup Type of IMAPI is "Manual" but you
can still see the Recording Tab. The problem occured when you install
third-party CD/DVD writing softwares.

Are you sure it's a blank CD? You can't write to a CD that has already been written to and "finalized"

If this is a new CD player, it should have the letters CD-RW printed on the front. If not, it's a reader only.

If you've used the CD writer before, go to Control Panel/System/Device Manager, and delete the CD player. Then reboot, and it will discover the player, and install the drivers again.

Dvd rom will not work


This is normally caused by missing or corrupt drivers for your CD drive. Again if the CD drive is not properly connected to the motherboard of your laptop, this can also happen

1. Try to restart the laptop and observe the results. Make sure there is no CD in the CD drive.
2. If you still have the same result, go to "my computer" and check whether the CD ROM
appears on the list of devices. If it appears then, right click on it and try to eject.
By doing this you want to check whether the CD tray is still mobile and not blocked
by anything else.
3.Then right-click on it again and go to its properties and go to the "Hardware" tab
4. In the Hardware tab, notice the list of drives connected to your laptop and choose the Cd Rom and go to "Properties"
5. Notice at this point, whether the device is said to be working properly or there is something wrong with it.
6. Then go to the "Driver" Tab, and choose "update driver"
6. This will let your system look for the missing or corrupt drivers for your CD drive.
Restart your computer and observe the results

I would start by going into my computer, right click on your burner, select properties then the recording tab and uncheck the box "enable CD recording on this device". Windows burning software causes havoc with other recording programs.

You may not have a CD burner in your computer or it is faulty.
Make sure you have a CD RW drive in the computer. You cannot burn a CD using a CD ROM drive. If you have a burner then Roxio will detect this drive.
You may not have enabled your CD drive to record.
Click on My Computer, then right click on the CD drive and click on Properties, Click on the Recording Tab, then tick Enable CD Recording on this Drive.

My cd- rw wont work when i put cds in there it wont work


it's possible that you do not have the drive enabled for recording, or that your drivers are not up to date. Also ensure you are using the correct media for your drive.

Try this:

To verify that the drive is enabled for recording:
click start -> My Computer
right click on your CD-RW drive and click properties.
in the properties window that appears there should be a "recording" tab, select that tab.
Ensure that "enable CD recording on this drive" is checked and a location is selected for the temporary files (normally stored on the C drive or whatever drive you have windows installed on).

If the above does not work, obtain the most recent drivers for your CD-RW drive from the manufacturer's website.

CD Burning gets stuck


Try this: : Decreasing the burn speed If the drive is not recognizing the disc at all, skip to Step 4. Decrease the CD writer's burn speed by half to increase the likelihood of a successful burn. Decreasing the burn speed is a quick, easy way of increasing successful disc burning sessions, at the expense of taking more time to create a disc. The following steps are for Windows XP only. For Windows 98 and Me, decrease the write speed from within the software that you are using to write discs (RecordNow, Easy CD Creator)
  1. Click Start , and then My Computer .
  2. Right-click the drive icon, and select Properties .
  3. Select the Recording tab and reduce the Current Write Speed by half (for example, from 16x to 8x).
  4. Click OK and close the My Computer window. Try burning a CD. If the drive fails to create the CD, go to the next step.
Step 4: Setting up disc recording in Windows XP If the computer does not have Windows XP, skip to Step 6. If you are using Windows XP, use the following steps to ensure that native burning is enabled:
  1. Place a blank disc into the drive. NOTE: If the error <drive letter> is not accessible. Incorrect function. " opens, close it and continue using these steps to correct this problem.
  2. Click Start , and then My Computer .
  3. Right-click the writable drive icon, and select Properties .
  4. If a Recording tab is shown, select the Recording tab, select Enable CD recording on this drive , and then click OK . Try burning a disc again. Continue to the next Step if you are unable to burn a disc. If a recording tab is not shown, continue using these steps. Figure 2: Enable CD recording on this drive c00368150.gif
  5. Look for a Recording tab: If the Recording tab is not shown, Windows XP has not detected the drive as a recordable device. Use the following sub steps to enable the Recording tab:
    1. Click Start , Run , and type regedit in the Open field.
    2. Backup the registry: Select My Computer from the list, click File , Export , type a name that you will remember, and click Save .
    3. Click OK , and browse to the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CD Burning\Drives
    4. Click the Volume key that matches the CD/DVD drive that is capable of writing discs. If only one drive is installed, one volume key is listed. If you have more than one drive, examine the data values (by double-clicking them in the right pane) to find the correct drive.
    5. With the volume key selected in the left pane, double-click the Drive Type value in the right-pane. Figure 3: Drive Type registry value (CDRW) c01367502.jpg
    6. Type the number 1 in the Value Data field if the drive is capable of recording to CDRW discs (including CD-R discs). Type a 2 if the drive cannot write to CDRW discs but can burn CD-R discs. NOTE: A value of 3 indicates that the drive is only capable of reading discs. Changing this value to a 1 or 2 enables Windows to view the drive as a recordable drive.
    7. Click OK , and close Registry Editor.

How do you burn a cd on the travelmate 290 ?


Windows XP CD Copy Windows XP has CD-Recordable (CD-R) disc burning support for most CD writers.
8b118c9.gif First set your CD-recording options:
  • Open "My Computer"
  • Right-click your CD-R drive and select "Properties". See figure BK-1.
  • Select the "Recording" tab (if this tab isn't available, your device doesn't support CD burning).
  • Check the box to "Enable CD recording on this drive".
  • Select the drive to hold the temporary files (before the system burns a CD-R disc, the system writes the files to be recorded to an intermediary area - this area must have enough free space to hold an entire CD's content).
  • Select the CD recording speed (Fastest, 4X, 2X, and 1X).
  • Select whether to eject the media after recording.
  • Click OK.

Perform the following steps to record to a CD-R:
  • Insert a blank CD-R disc into your CD burner.
  • Copy or drag the files or folders to be recorded to the CD-R drive, or right-click on the files or folders and select Send To, Writable CD.
7f66e80.jpg
  • After you have copied all the files, select the CD-R drive from "My Computer" and you'll see the waiting files as "Files to add to the CD."
  • Right-click the CD-R drive, and select Write to CD.
  • Enter a name for the CD-R disc, and click Next.
  • The files will be written to the CD-R disc.
  • After the system writes all the files, it will eject the CD-R disc (if you chose that option above).
  • Click Finish.
