XPs own CD burner facility is missing

  User-324448 11:49 07 Oct 04

Hi I installed Nero Burner thinking that as it was popular it would suit my needs, I didnt like it so I uninstalled it hoping that this would "uncover" the XP one I used before, You know the thing, drag what you want burning onto your desktop shortcut to the burner, and a yellow box opens up telling you that you have things waiting to burn, How do I retrieve XPs simple programme Prof.

Try this:
Go to start/settings/control panel/administrative tools/services
look down the list for IMAPI cd burning COM service
Under 'start up type' if it's set to 'disabled' right click on the word 'diabled' then click 'properties' and reset it to automatic.

hope that helps.
