Have you check that the configuration for using WMP11 for burning is still correct?

From My Computer>>highlight your optical drive (rewriter)>Properties>Recording tab>ensure that Enable Digital Recording on this drive is ticked.

Other than checking whats been suggested by Stuartli, have you tried getting rid of all the other programs and just try using WMP11 to rip and burn cd's.
I used to use Roxio but uninstalled it as it was causing conflicts, but WMP11 or version 10 for that matter works fine.

Forgive me if I've misunderstood your problem, but I use WMP for all my cd needs.
And don't worry if you do uninstall, as long as your music is on the hd, WMP11 will find it, well, it did for me.

Dvd's on the other hand are another story, lol!

Sb23,tnanks i'll try getting rid of roxio to see if that cures the problem if it dosen't will try reinstalling wmp11.
