I used to be able to burn CD's fine, but one day, I tried burning a CD using iTunes, and it said "Disc burner or software not found." I tried using Yahoo! Music Jukebox, and it gave me pretty much the same message - that it couldn't recognize a CD burner on the computer.
I'm not sure how it could have suddenly just stopped working, but I have some ideas:
1) I have a Compaq computer, & Windows XP. My computer is very old. I've had it for 3 years. It could be that the burner just...gave out. In that case, how would I go about fixing and replacing it? And approximately how much would it cost?
2) Now this may sound stupid, but I think I may have somehow damaged the burner. We have a rocking chair for a computer chair, and one day as I sat down, it hit the eject button and opened the drive. Then the opened drive got caught under the corner of the chair, and I didn't notice, and I scooted in, and I heard a crack of some sort. The drive opens and closes perfectly, but well, I think it may have caused internal damage. Is this possible?
I haven't tried to see if it reads CD's or not. All I know is it doesn't burn them.
