Hi Guys, second posting hot on the heels of the first. Problem with the desktop PC this time. I was recently given a 4 year old Packard Bell iMedia 3064 running XP Home, 2002. AMD Athlon XP3000+ 2.16 Ghz, 512MB Ram, 80Gb HDD. This worked fine but had not been used on the net so had not received any updates. I connected to Microsoft and brought the PC up to date including installing Service Pack 2 and IE7. After doing this, the CD/DVD rom drive icon dissapeared from 'My Computer' and I could no longer write to the drive as it vanished from the right click menu also. I tried a registry fix posted on this board by John Will which worked first time (thanks John) by restoring the drive to its location on 'My Computer'. sadly, its still not on the right click menu so I am unable to burn to disc even with Windows Media Player 11, music or pictures as a box appears saying there is no disc in the drive even when a known good disc is in there. I have downloaded CDBurnerXP which now allows me to burn to disc. Is there any way I can restore the facility on the right click menu or place CDburnerXP on it so as not to have to go through hoops each time I want to write to disc?. Any leads greatly appreciated.
