turn off native burner

In xp

And uninstall all your programs and try just one at first

I find nero by far the best imho but thats me

don't run anything in the background like an Anti Virus or a firewall.
go check your services maybe you diabled something important.


I have a similar problem. If I want to burn I have to use a different computer than I usually use. It always comes up with an error. I have tried Nero, I have tried the WinXP one, either way theres errors. I have concluded there is something wrong with my burner... but i dunno. I forget the error message and am too lazy to go look.

there are some pieces of hardware that refuse to work with XP, you should check the Windows Catalogue to see if your burner is on their list of compatible software, or if you have a Designed for Windows XP label on the box that the drive came in.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
