Problem WMP 10 Not Seeing My CD&DVD Drives

I’m trying to burn some music and I can’t get it to recognize either one of my cd’s even though they show under properties…

XP SP2 Athlon Nforce-2 ( Tried the ms ide drivers as well)

I’ve also googled and found.

Just checked the HCL and both drives are on there.


I can burn fine with nero but MS doesn’t like my drives. I don’t show the recording tab under properties.

This picture is from the MS site…

Fixed windows recognizing drive and giving a recording tab by changing the dword from 3 to 2 in the registry, however WMP still won’t see drives.
