    i have to 52x CD burners one internal and one external usb. with both i can boot off a CD. when windows loads i can see both Roms neither of them have errors in the DM. When i put in ANY kind of CD it just registers as a blank CD that cant be burnt to. i know for a fact that it is not a hardware problem.(because i can boot off them). i have windows xp pro and sp2. its also a fresh install of windows.

    has anyone ever dealt with this of know how to fix it?

    Does XP recognise that the drive is a burner ? To check, right click the drive in My Computer and select properties, you should see the drive properties window pop up, is there a tab that says Recording ?

    If not check this link for a possible solution, http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;316529
