Hi, well as a start I think you should more or less do as it says - ie, check your connections especially ide cables, they do sometimes work loose.
Though no doubt other members will come and give their suggestions too.

Something to check Mike;

Start / My Computer / Right click the cd drive and select properties / Recording / Check there is a tick for Enable cd recording on this drive.

Failing this,check your connection as said by Techno.

Hi Techno,hope your well mate :-)))

Hi skidzy - been a bit up-and-down lately, that's why I have been a bit intermittent on here. Thanks for asking.

See what you mean .. LoL


Perhaps if you run CCleaner click here and then re-install WMP.
