Serious burner!

first of all, HI EVERYONE!!! :slight_smile:

i just got a new burner, philips cdrw1610a and i was extremely excited. But as usual my dreams shattered when it just wouldnt work

it was easy to install and all, xp installed the drivers by itself etc etc and when i use windows xp`s internal burning software it works great, BUT when i use fireburner,cdrwin,nero,fantomcd and so on. it just wont work

take fireburner for instance it start to work just nicely but then before it even starts to burn it ejects the cd and i get this message: (sorry its quite long)

What is the problem?? and windows wouldnt burn with its own software with some of the cd`s

please i really need help, want to fix this or return it…

I’m not familiar with XP but eveywhere you read about burning and XP it is recommended to disable XP’s built in CD burning app.

Sorry I can’t help more, hopefully someone who’s familiar with XP can walk you through it.

To getter better exposure and a faster rsponse, why don’t you edit your subject line to read “Can’t use any burn software using Windows XP” or something like that, it’s more to the point than the very vague ‘Serious burner problem… help!’ :confused:

To edit, just click on your post on the 'edit/delete’button on the lower left of the post.

Hope this helps and welcome to the forum, CleaningMuppet :slight_smile:

Try this in run type: msconfig go to the services tab and then scroll down looking for IMAPI CD-Burning Com, uncheck it, then goto my computer and right click on your cd burner goto properties and then to the recording tab uncheck allow recording on this drive now try it, if it doesn’t work just backtrack and recheck everything…

This will completely disable Wndows XP native burning
