    There is no Recording Tab when I click on my disk drives in Device Manager.
    Clicking on Device Manager then my drives I get following tabs;
    General, Properties, DVD, Region, Volumes, Drivers, Details
    Trying to see if record is turned on for drives I keep getting \Is not accessible incorrect function when accessing drives

    Go to 'My Computer'. Right click your DVD drive and choose 'Properties.
    What are the make and model of the drives?

    No recording tab.
    Yes related to the above problem think It was all caused by Roxio which I uninstalled. Also I can't drag and drop to my internal CD drive or my external DVD drive.

    Continue in the other thread. You have to run the Fixcd.reg that Johnwill posted.

    I have the same problem with the recording tab going missing half way through creating a disc. I have checked that IMAPI is on auto and started, then used your FIXCD.REG which appears to have corrected the problem. My question is why I keep getting this happen? I can record using other software, even though I have no recording tab but find dragging and dropping with the Windows Wizard quicker and easier when it's just a couple of things to do. Can you shed any light on why this would keep occurring?
    Many thanks

    Further to above, even though I have the recording tab back, in the wizard I can only write not erase. I have checked that the drive type is 2 so was wondering if you could help me find my erase again?
    Many thanks
