Unable to write to CD

  learningslow 15:51 21 Apr 04

Each time I try to write to cd I get the message an error has occurred whilst formatting the medium, then an error message write protected comes up. I am running XP with Pinnacle Instant CD/DVD. Any help much appreciated. I am a newbie please keep it simple. Thanks.

It's a long shot but try this :-

Check that the CD-RW drive is set up to write. Right click My Computer, right click on the CDRW drive and select Properties, Recording Tab and check that CD recording is enabled. It should already be there by default but it's worth checking if you're having problems.

Also try Start, Admin Tools, Services and find IMAPI CD Burning..... and start it running.

Is this your first attempt to write a CD or have you been able to do so and suddenly stopped?
