    Hi, I recently purchased a new computer. I want to give my old computer (HP Pavilion) to my brother-in-law so I ran the recovery discs. Everything worked great except that I had my cd burner upgraded a couple of years after I purchased it and after running the recovery discs (with the format) the computer says that it is an unsupported drive and I can't use it as a burner (CD-R). It seems that it can be used as a cd ROM because I can play music CD's from it. To comlicate matters further, The guy that upgraded my burner didn't give me any discs that might have come with it. I am not even sure what brand it is except that it has "Just Link 48x12x48x" on the front of it. Can you help me? Thanks PS my OS is Windows ME

    What CD burning do you currently have? There may be an update to support new drives.

    Check the HP site for your model of computer to download any software updates to the CD burning software.

    Here's a link to some free software if you can find or get updates to your software: http://www.deepburner.com/

    You will need a CD burning package. Either Roxio EZCd or Nero Burning from ahead.Usually there are no drivers for CDrw's that come with them. But they nearly always come with a CD for the burning software. I say usually, if it was purchased as an OEM drive it may not have come with anything except the drive. If you were to purchase a burner program I would suggest the Roxio.

    Windows XP comes with the capabilities for CD burning I am not sure about WinME. You could possible download Windows media player 9 I thinnk it has burning capabilities built in.
