Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Recording tab in the properties of the cd drive is missing.I can't erase or write on the cd.
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.
