CD Burning in XP

  woodm01 21:40 14 Nov 2007

For some reason, XP will not let me enable CD Recording. The IMAPI service is running, and it enables me to tick the option Enable CD Recording on this drive.

However, the option below which asks you to select a drive, is empty and it won't let me type anything in the pulldown box.

Is this corruption, and if so, does anybody know how to fix it ?

Are you administrator or do you have a Limited account.

This may help if you have a Limited account

Allow limited users access to CD Burning:

To allow Limited User's to burn CD's, click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT. Go to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Look in the right pane for AllocateDASD and double click the entry. Set the value to 2.

I have administrator rights, but it still does not work.
