yes yes, but i was afraid it would have gotten buried under all the other posts and lost to endless cache of the internet.
i have XP sp2, and my burner is a _NEC DVD+-RW ND-6650A from what i can gather. itunes works fine. winamp says it works fine. i realized a while later that i was running DVD43 (dvd decryption software) about the time this happened.
a friend of mine recommended that i either reinstall XP from the CD, which i dont have, or to upgrade to WINDOWS 7, which im not leaning too strongly towards right now.
its because of this issue that ive been sampling other media players in hopes of capturing the UI of WMP, but ive still grown warm to that buggy thing. is there a chance that WMP 12 may come out anytime soon?... but i guess i would still have that IMAPI problem.
