WMP 10 won't detect my DVD burner

  glynda 20:57 08 Sep 2005

I would like to use WMP 10 to burn some CD'S or DVD's but it does not detect my DVD burner saying that I should press F5 to refresh but nothing happens.
The burner is a Sony and works with all other programmes

Help please!

WMP's Tools>Options<Devices>highlight the drive(s)>Properties>Recording tab>Enable Recording on this drive.

The drive is in the tools- devices section of WMP but there is no recording tab when I click on properties only audio

You should have Audio, Recording and Quality tabs.

Thanks for your help . . . I've double checked and there is just an audio tab with playback and audio boxes - Should I uninstall WMP 10 and then reinstall it

Should have said . . . just an audio tab with playback and rip boxes

You can't uninstall WMP10. Check out the FAQs:

If none of these help, perhaps downloading the latest version of WMP10 from the Microsoft website might provide the solution.

Thanks again . . . Clicked on the links but no luck - checked in the marketplace that my device is compatible with XP Home and it is . . . why wouldn't I have a recording or quality tab in the devices section you mentioned before

Does windows recognise the drive as a dvd burner,and not a standared dvd rom drive?

Have you got the DVD element? (This AFAIK does not come as standard with MP10).
