What CD/DVD recording software you uninstalled. Roxio and possibly others have an uninstall error noted at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314060
Please don't reply that you don't have the software noted and didn't delete the noted keys. The issue applies to a variety of such software with the fix being the same. Save me one reply.
Here is the system:
Hp Media Center 370n
50 gigs free out of 160
My system has had a problem buring CD-RW's, where it would only let me burn once and then the disc couldn't be written to again or erased. Contacted HP support, they told me to uninstall all burning software, go to device manager uninstall both DVD/CD drives and restart. At this point the system reinstalled the drives, but now I can't read any CD or DVD. It will show in the drive name when I have a disc in (i.e. audio disc e: ), but I can't look at the files, and it won't auto install programs.
I have looked and looked for help, but can't find any and HP is not helping my any further.
