Windows Media Player 11 / Windows XP / Dell 4600 Computer

Windows Media Player 11 will not recognize the CD burner when you attempt to burn a CD by selecting "Burn" on the player. I also have Roxio Creator LE software and it burns CD's with no problem. The hardware devise check says the CD devise is working normal and it is selected for recording. I removed and reinstalled WMP11 and this did not help.

From memory.

Installing Roxio takes over the recording process. Keep using what works.

I had same issue

I had Roxio installed and it did the same thing, I had to uninstall Roxio and reinstall the driver for the cd burner for it to work. I would stay with Roxio or totally remove it.
