Connect a burner?

wondering if anyone can help me with windows media player.

up until a month ago i burned cd’s with no problem. now everytime i go to make a cd, i am told that i need to “connect a burner and restart windows media player”.

can anyone suggest a fix for this. i have been told i need to down load drivers. i am not real confident on a computer so i am a lil reluctant to start downloading drives. especially when i dont even know which ones to down load.

if anyone can help, i would be so greatful! thanks
