    I am having the same problem here...I just downloaded iTunes 7.1.1 and now it gives me the "disc burner or software not found" message. i have un and re-installed this on my laptop and that did not work, and I am always logged on as the admin. I only have one drive, and it is recognized in iTunes under the Advanced Burning tab.

    This is so aggravating! :mad: Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

    Thanks!

    Evening all, I have this problem too- it just came about when I had successfully burnt one CD, and then just decided to give up on me! Am fully updated etc (maybe thats the problem!)

    yes thank you. i still haven't gotten it to recognize my burners. it worked with itunes before but not anymore i can't understand. i've uninstalled and reinstalled using several methods. i uninstalled all other 3rd party burning software that might be conflicting with it and still no luck. for some reason when i reopen itunes all my music is there as if it was never uninstalled. i need to get a registry cleaner to make sure its all gone!

    ehhk... not yet. i think its because i have vista 64bit. i'm not even worried about it any more cause i don't burn cds much and if i do, i use WMP to do it. i found a solution to my itunes conversion problem with a special software. hope you find a solution to it.

    i have the same problem. I haven't had the time or energy to mess with it, but I will find a solution tonight for it.

    Question, are you trying to do Audio CDs, MP3 CD, or Data CD?

    No prob (y)

    I would like to restate that if you have any virtual CD Emulators like Daemon Tools that use SPTD, you can reinstall it after you follow the instructions.
