probs burning cds with XP

  topdude 10:27 01 Oct 2005

I am having probs writing to CD with XP's own writing software, all seems ok until the final step when the prompt says "no CD in drive".
The drive is recognised in Device manager and plays CDs and DVDs fine.
I dual boot with another HDD with XP installed in the same computer and can write to CD with no probs.
Must be some issue with Windows own writing software on one of the drives but not the other.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

OPTION 1 - Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
