Help Please!
I am having the same problem here...I just downloaded iTunes 7.1.1 and now it gives me the "disc burner or software not found" message. i have un and re-installed this on my laptop and that did not work, and I am always logged on as the admin. I only have one drive, and it is recognized in iTunes under the Advanced Burning tab.

This is so aggravating! Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

Thanks!

Hiya and welcome

I've split you off into a new thread, as that one had already been solved.

Have you got the latest updates:

Evening all, I have this problem too- it just came about when I had successfully burnt one CD, and then just decided to give up on me! Am fully updated etc (maybe thats the problem!)

Hiya and welcome, junge84

As you have Vista, take a look at this first:

iTunes for Windows Vista: Troubleshooting unexpected quits, freezes, or launch issues

For the others, take a look here:

iTunes for Windows XP: Troubleshooting unexpected quits, freezes, or launch issues

yes thank you. i still haven't gotten it to recognize my burners. it worked with itunes before but not anymore i can't understand. i've uninstalled and reinstalled using several methods. i uninstalled all other 3rd party burning software that might be conflicting with it and still no luck. for some reason when i reopen itunes all my music is there as if it was never uninstalled. i need to get a registry cleaner to make sure its all gone!

not yet
ehhk... not yet. i think its because i have vista 64bit. i'm not even worried about it any more cause i don't burn cds much and if i do, i use WMP to do it. i found a solution to my itunes conversion problem with a special software. hope you find a solution to it.

i have the same problem. I haven't had the time or energy to mess with it, but I will find a solution tonight for it.

Question, are you trying to do Audio CDs, MP3 CD, or Data CD?

well couldn't do much...

there is a thread on Apple's site that you may want to keep tabs on

http://discussions.apple.com/thread....19582&tstart=0

Someone else has the same problem... maybe we can get something there.

Looks like Mr. JohnWill has the solution here:

http://forums.techguy.org/multimedia...ht=itunes+burn

Though I'm not too sure why that was the fault, because I never have had an issue at all.

edit: iTunes is now burning again... so it looks like if you have Daemon Tools, that is the culprit.

No prob

I would like to restate that if you have any virtual CD Emulators like Daemon Tools that use SPTD, you can reinstall it after you follow the instructions.
