Can not burn cd


Windows Media Player supports burning a music CD from your playlist. Help on using the software is available from the Help menu on the toolbar at the top of the window. The Acer may also have been supplied with another burning program such as Nero or Roxio. Again, these programs have help available. You can also find additional help online by searching for a specific problem.

Personally, I use and recommend InfraRecorder (available at infrarecorder.org). It's a free open-source burning program that's pretty easy to use.

Now, if you're still having problems, please post a follow-up comment with the details (what you're trying to do, the software you're using, errors that are popping up, etc.) and those of us here should be able to get you going.

Wont let me show anything


Have you recently installed any music players that may overwrite the default program used to play the files? Maybe you should try reinstalling Windows Media Player (click this). If Windows Media Player doesn't work for movies, try VLC Media Player (link). Try Winamp for music.

Windows Media Player is not visible when opened. I don't know how this happened or how to fix it. I use Windows XP Home and have Media Player 11. After I discovered the problem, I downloaded version 11,...


There is a possibility that its running on the background, try to end the process of the program under task manager(Press Crtl+Alt+Del) the go to Processes, look for mmpnscfg.exe, highlight and then click End Process button. Then restart the computer and try again to open Windows Media Player.

Hope this will solve your problem with the media player not opening..

Hello,

Sounds like you have may have it run on startup. Just to see you can use msconfig to temporarily disable it by following these steps:

Hello,

That usually means that a program that starts when Windows starts isnt functioning correctly, You can test it by clixking Start > Run > type Msconfig and press enter. After that click the startup tab. Here you will see programs that load when Windows starts.

If you recognize the program thats causing the issue, simply click the box to the left of the item to uncheck it and click OK. You will then be prompted to restart.

As the machine restarts, check to see if the issue has disappeared.

If so, great. Be aware that you that you will be prompted with a "System Configuration Utility" dialog that lets you know you are using Msconfig. If you don't want to be warned of this, click the box that says "Dont show this message..." and click OK.

If not, run Msconfig again, and uncheck the next suspicious program and repeat the process until the problem disappears.

Below is a link with information on using Msconfig. It also has other links that include information of some of the programs that you might see in the startup window of Msconfig.

http://www.netsquirrel.com/msconfig/msconfig_xp.html

NOTE:
There's is a "Disable all" button under the startup tab. But I wouldn't suggest using that initially. It is better to uncheck them one at a time so you can see what is causing the issue.
Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.
Thanks

There are many reasons for Windows to freeze on shutdown.

See if you can pinpoint your problem.

Try rolling back to the previous version of Media Player. Go to Control Panel, Add & Remove Programs. Click on Windows Media Player and select remove. It will give you the option to go back to the previous version.
