    Good news, I simply turned the system off, opened the unit and unplugged the cables from the cdrw. I booted back up without it, shut down and reconnected it. It now shows up in device manager. No exclamation marks anywhere. Rollin'Rog thank you for your attentive response! I now need to find some good software to recognize the burner. None installed. Thanks again for the help. Will not report this solved for now, although it looks good.

    Great, I will mark this "resolved". If you need help with the burner software search, perhaps the folks in All Other Software might make some recommendations. Myself, I've only used the default Roxio/Adaptec wares that came with my XP box.

    Thrilled to find this thread since I am getting the same exact warning screen upon bootup. I recently uninstalled Zone Alarm since my newly installed cable modem would not work with ZA on the computer. Here is my big question: I am really not thrilled about the idea of editing the Registry even with Rog's excellent instructions. Can I simply leave the error message which occurs on bootup and follow its instructions to press any key to continue? My computer seems to be working fine once I get past the error message.

    Thanks!

    "Good" as in "it is okay to leave the error message and follow its instructions"? I'm afraid that, by playing around with the Registry, I may screw things up even worse.
