WMP connect a burner and restart the player!!!

  Anon-542089 10:22 10 Jan 2020

Hello and good morning to you all. I am hoping that I can get some immediate help here. I have 2 laptops running windows 10, 1 is mine and one for a freind. The laptops do not have optical cd drives, so I have a portable cd burner. I an trying to rip some music for a friend using Windows media player. I have inserted the cd with music into windows media player, and it has copied ALL the music to windows media player with no issues whatsoever. Now I have inserted a blank cd and rip the songs and it tells me: Connect a burner and restart the player. I have tried a few things online to no avail, and this is the same problem on BOTH laptops......please advice on a solution. I know for a fact that the portable cd is just play and play and windows recognizes once it has been connected. I am totally baffled here. Any help would be much appreciated

Hello and good evening. Issue FINALLY sorted. There seem to be some problems when connecting certain brands of external cd burners in windows 10. I have now connected a Liteon CD burner and itunes recognized it immediately.
