my problem is my cd will only read not write.It did work well (if slowly- the hardware is called TEAC CD W54E I think) for many months previously.
My own system is Win me with 300Mghz and 256Ram.
I have scratched my head over it for a while and am quite pessimistic, at the back of my mind wonering if ny sytem is a little too stretched now.But I would like to try to reinstall the Roxio CD but think that I might have to clean up the registry at the same time as the reinstall I did do was no help.I also disabled the CD in System Device Manager to no effect.I also
any ideas?

You need to consider that the CD Writer could actually be faulty.

If the Write Laser efficiency drops, or the Write laser fails, then it will not write.

They seem to have a finite life, some barely last a year, some several years. A bit like hard drives these days!

They are so cheap now, they are almost a "consumable"

I did wonder it myself but the man who put it in and who is in the business around here said he thought it was alright.Well I know that could mean anything!But the thing is that I am reluctant to put much money into the old system I have now -especially if the cd did only last about 6 months.So I would like to exhaust the possibilities for tweaking my settings ,which may be all that is required.Can anyone tell me how to completely uninstall the software as I suspect that the Add/Remove button may leave stuff still in the registry and I can't seem to find any instructions on the internet for how to do it
