Cdrw not working

  Bagsey 09:02 05 Oct 2003

Having just got my desktop computer back from Mesh I find that although the DVD reader and the CDrw drives read disks I am unable to write to CD. When trying I get the message that some DLLs are wrong?? This really means nothing to me and would be very pleased to have some advice on how to correct this problem. I am very reluctant to allow Mesh to have my machine for another 6 weeks.

Machine Mesh 1900 XP
Ram 1 gig.
Windows XP home

Oh yes and I am not getting any sound either.

make sure you have the sound drivers installed , and do you have your windows disk as you may have to repair to get the dll's back .

If you are using 3rd party burning software have you tried uninstalling it then reinstalling plus see if there are any updates for it.

Is there no one that has any clues to offer on my CDRW problem. I would HATE to have to go back to Mesh.Cheers and thanks in advance

It sounds like a Software problem. Try doing what Rayuk has said. Sound problem, Make sure Ur sound isn't muted. Control Panel-Sounds & Audio Devivces-Volume Tab- In Device Volume, Advanced button-The Play Control come up, Make sure none R Muted.
