Heres a fix i found that worked for me


Go to regedit and follow this:...

+HKEY Current User
+Software
+Microsoft
+Windows
+Current Version
+Explorer
+CD Burning
+Drives
+Volume

In the right pane, click on Drive Type


If the current Drive Type DWord = 00003, change it to 00002. After the change your CDRW should show up properly.


also uninstall hot fix Q309691 for cd burners if it doesnt see a cd disk properly

:D hope it works for you...........Stan

+Current Version
+Explorer
+CD Burning
but after this there is only this
Excluded FS

NOT
+Drives
+Volume

What do you think?
