    I have windows media player 10 hear lately when I attempt to burn cds from my playlist. I get a message that says no cd or dvd burner has been detected. I have installed windows media player 11 and rolled back to 10 and uninstalled and reinstalled 10. I get the same message I am able to burn images in my roxio se perfectly. Can someone help me?:)
    Thank you[/SIZE]

    I have same or similar prob with WMP11. Not sure when it first occurred, as I havent tried a burn till today. I have two drives. Tried with both drives and different new discs.

    Insert a blank disk and
    • Explorer pops up showing disc is recognized.
    • WMP switches from 'No Disc' to 'Unknown' over on LHS under Library
    • 'Insert a blank CD' (IABCD) stays just above the burn list.
    I close the Explorer window just in case. Now I drag some titles over. IABCD is replaced momentarily by 'Calculating...' and then back to IABCD.

    I then click on 'Start Burn' The CD tray opens, 'Insert Media' message box appears ...

    now I am in a loop.
    • If I click on Cancel, WMP just goes back to square one (flashes up Burn Complete, despite tray being open) then goes inactive and waiting for user interaction.
    • If instead I push the disc back in, Explorer comes up showing the disc and WMP remains with the Insert Media message box (until I click cancel again, when 'Burn Complete' shows down in bottom bar).

    Just to be clear, no burning happens!
