    Windows Media Center
    WMP 10
    No Windows updates since owner purchased PC, Aug 2006.

    Gateway GM 5091E desktop.

    Will not burn using WMP 10.
    Fails to burn files from playlist to CD.

    WMP 10 will play songs in "my music"; & will play commercial CDs.
    WMP 10 will rip songs to the HDD.

    itunes also installed, but I didn't try to use it.

    Will not burn using Cyberlink's Power2Go.
    Fails copying commercial music CDs; 1 relatively new; 1 ~ 10 yrs old.
    Fails to burn files from c:\docs & sets\un\my docs\my music\artist\album

    CL P2G reports that the process has aborted. No other error message.

    Nothing in event viewer.

    I am able to burn data files [ .doc ] using XP's function, or using P2G.

    Problem began about a month ago.

    Using same Sony CD-R disks as before [ now a lot of coasters ].

    Problem also using Verbatim CD - R disks.

    The PC has 1 burner & 1 player.

    Thanks for your help.

    Sincerely,
    RF123

    Clean boot troubleshooting has pointed me towards success.
    In the system config utility, I hid all Microsoft services; then disable the remainder.

    In the startup group, I disabled everything.

    After rebooting, I was able to create an audio CD using WMP 10.

    Booted to safe mode.
    Booted with all Windows services, but neither 3rd party services nor any items in startup group enabled; WMP 10 burned an Audio CD.
    I added all of the 3rd party services, but no items in the startup group; rebooted; WMP 10 burned an Audio CD.
    I added 1/2 of the items in the startup group; rebooted; WMP 10 burned an Audio CD.
    Again & Again, until I had added of items in the startup group; WMP 10 burned an Audio CD.

    At no point was CyberLink's Power2Go able to create an audio CD.

    CL has recommended uninstalling [ the provided detailed instructions ], then re-installing Power2Go. The owner needs to find the installation disk; the OEM had provided the Power2Go "lite" version, the source for re-installation may be part of the image.

    Direct X 9, by the way.
