Hi,
I have recieved this message when trying to burn a cd "no cd burner detected press f5 to refresh.
It doesnt work,was working fine recently when I copied some pics onto disk
running xp pavilion pc, tried updating drivers and a few other things nothing seems to get it going,I recently uninstalled real player, might have something to do with that?

Did you try a restore?

yes tried that,it didnt work either i have uninstalled and reinstalled nothing seems to get it recognised,as i mentioned earlier I have recently uninstalled real player and can only think that this has hijacked some codecs or something like that,I am now going to reinstall real player to see if that does anything, thanks for trying for me
cheers

Or try this,1. Click on Start --> Run --> and type in 'regedit' followed by the enter key
2. Expand the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" key (looks like a folder) by double clicking it (or
3. clicking the "+" next to it.)
4. Expand the "SYSTEM" Key
5. Expand the "CurrentControlSet" Key
6. Expand the "Control" Key
7. Expand the "Class" Key
8. Please look for a key containing the following string of letter and numbers:
{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
9. High light this key by left clicking once on it
10. On the right hand side you are looking for "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" under the "Name" column, once you find these please delete them by right clicking on them and choosing "delete"
11. Please exit the registry by clicking on the "X" in the top right hand corner of the screen


Reboot your computer
