Question No disc recording software found in itunes 8
Hi,

I am unable to burn cds in itunes, this was working fine until recently when I had a problem with the cd drive disappearing. I managed to get that back and I am able to burn cds in windows media player 11.

The music I want to burn I have purchased from itunes as an album and so I need to burn it within itunes. I am running vista home basic.

Boy! You ain't gonna like this.....
THIS IS MAINLY A RANT......

You will find out that literally thousands are experiencing the same thing. Many claim to "Have the answer". HA! Here is what i have done to try to resolve this issue so far....

1. Uninstall i Tunes.
2. Reinstall i Tunes.
3. Unistalled My logictech video camera drivers.
4. Gone here: http://www.gearsoftware.com/support/drivers.cfm and downloaded the most recent "Gear driver".
5. Manually removed the gear driver from the registry.
6. Become seriously involved with: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
7. Become seriously involved with: GEARAspiWDM
8. Deleted Upperfilters
9. Deleted Lowerfilters
10. Replaced my Upperfilters
11. Replaced my lowerfilters.
12. Repaired i Tunes installation bout a dozen times
13. Wasted multiple blank discs trying goofy things to "work around" this issue.
14. wrote a nasty email to I tunes support.
15. deleted "Mobile Me".
16. Tried to install earlier versions of i Tunes.
17 Learned that my Library created with the latest version of i Tunes could not be read with an earlier version of i Tunes.
18. Learned what AAC is all about.
19. Looked on my laptop I took to Iraq with me, and can still burn stuff from i Tunes (it hasn't been updated in a while) and copied it's older registry settings about "4D36E965-E325"...thinking that might work, it didn't.
20. Actually read, word for word, the i Tunes EULA, which hasn't been updated in over a year!
21. Looked online for software to convert the AAC encoded files to something I can use.
22. Returned to the Gear site multiple times: ftp://downloads.gearsoftware.com/upd...er_x86_x64.exe, and downloaded this a bunch of times!
23. Learned that the i Tunes "updates" sometime install software without you knowing about it---like "Mobile me".
24. Learned to hate "No disc recording software found".
25. Learned that windows media player has no problem finding disc recording software.
26. Learned this issue has been going on since i Tunes version 4.0, but the most recent update made it all FUBAR.
27. Done a full anti-virus scan.
28. ensured my BIOS was up to date.
29. ensured all device drivers up to dated.
30. Installed all Windows updates.
31. Downloaded a bunch of stupid 'FREE SCAN!" registry fixer programs- what a waste that was.
32. Tried two different external burners- NADA.
33. Restored my computer to 6 months ago, got scurd, and re restored it to present settings.

BASICALLY WHOEVER FIXES THIS ISSUE WILL TRULY BE DA MAN!

I know that didn't help, but it sure felt good!

I have the same problem!!! My iTunes could only download 9 of 12 songs from Amazon, but all 12 are in WMP 11. iTunes also told me I need to re-install because there is no CD recording software. Apple dropped the ball this time!!!

Have I solved the " i Tunes cannot detect burning software" issue?
I have found an answer to this problem......

I can now re-create the "I tunes not recognizing any burning software" issue at will, and fix it in a heartbeat. This will also take care of that "Itunes registry values....." message that pops up right before the main i Tunes program begins.

____________________________________________________________

IT APPEARS THAT WHEN GEARAspiWDM GETS INSTALLED IT DOES NOT CREATE A "MULTI-STRING VALUE", IT CREATES A "STRING VALUE", WHICH DONT DO NO GOOD. THE UPPERFILTERS VALUE MUST BE A MULTI STRING VALUE, JUST NOT A "STRING VALUE".

1. Download the latest gear driver at:

http://www.gearsoftware.com/support/drivers.cfm

2. Once that is installed you have to DELETE the UPPERFILTERS entry in your system registry, AND CREATE A NEW UPPERFILTERS VALUE at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318 (of course you knew once you get there just click on "favorites" in your system registry and add it your favorites).
__________________________________________________________
YOU WILL BE DELETING THE UPPER VALUE: DONT WORRY YOU WILL BE CREATING A NEW ONE. __________________________________________________________
GO HERE IN THE SYSTEM REGISTRY:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318

FIND THE UPPER FILTER VALUE AND DELETE IT!

1. WHILE IN HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318 using the system registry editor: EDIT > NEW > MULTI STRING VALUE. IT MUST BE A "Multi String Value".

2. NAME IT UpperFilters.

3. Once it's created and named, right click on it and select "Modify".

4. Enter this into the box that will pop up: GEARAspiWDM AS SOON AS YOU TYPE THE GEARAspiWDM PRESS ENTER. This "carriage return" is required.

THE VALUE FOR THE UpperFilters should be: REG_MULTI_SZ (Which means it is a multi string value).

5. REBOOT

6. TADAA!
