I Need CD Burning Help!!!

I just bought a Toshiba Satellite Laptop a few months ago.  I use iTunes and when I try to burn a CD, it says that it can't detect CD Burning Software.  Don't most laptops nowadays have CD Burners??  On my CD drive it says Compact Disc Rewritable Ultra Speed...so I'm pretty sure I do have the ability to burn CDs...

 

anyone know how to fix this??

 

thanks!

Re: I Need CD Burning Help!!!

Check if CD recording is enabled on your computer if you're using Windows XP.

 

If you have a compatible CD burner, you shouldn't need to do anything special to get it working under Windows XP Home Edition or Professional. The core code that makes CD recording possible is enabled automatically when you set up Windows XP. If you're unable to record a CD, start the troubleshooting process by checking to ensure that the feature is properly configured:

 

1. Open My Computer, right-click the CD Drive icon, and then click Properties.

2. Click the Recording tab to display the settings shown in Figure 1.

Okay, now I've closed all the windows. What do I do next? By the way, it's a bit warmer with all the windows closed...

Re: I Need CD Burning Help!!!

You seem to have been affected by the issue with Microsoft Vista regarding the missing CD/DVD Drive.  There is a file that can be downloaded from the Toshiba Support Site that can fix that problem. 

 

Click on this link to get directed to the support page --->  Missing CD/DVD Drive in My Computer

 

This should fix your issue.

This will help resolve that :smileywink: CD / DVD drive missing from 'My Computer' (Windows Explorer)
