    I just bought an external burner since the burner on my laptop is dying, but I can't get iTunes to use the external to burn. It can read the CD's that I put in to play/import but when I click on burn the laptop's drive pops open and iTunes asks me to insert the CD, even though I have a blank CD in the external.

    Someone on another message board suggested assigning a fixed drive letter, but I have no idea how to do that on XP.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, that worked. I don't know how I didn't see the burning tab when going through the preferences last night- I only checked half a dozen times.
