When I use iTunes to burn a cd, it says "cannot find cd burning software" and other programs say I don't have a CD burning drive. How can I fix this? Any info needed I am happy to give

Is this a recent problem or have you never been able to burn CDs.

Some general troubleshooting things you can try:
  • If you recently installed some burning software, uninstall/reinstall it.
  • Use the fix given on this Microsoft page.
  • Clean the laser using one of those drive cleaning kits.
  • Open the Device Manager (Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc"). Locate the CD/DVD drive, right click on it and select "Uninstall". After it has uninstalled reboot the computer (it will be automatically reinstalled).

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
