Not sure what I did, (I download things constantly and make changes frequently) but now when I insert a blank CD there is no response at all as opposed to before when a prompt would ask what action I wanted to take. I checked that the IMAPI service is enabled (manual) and enable burning on this device is checked. I have also uninstalled the CD Drive and let Windows XP Pro reinstall it several times. Any ideas?

This might have been done by your AV or malware tools
Ever since the autorun induced virus, it is being widely recommended to turn off the autorun function.
Some tools have been doing this automatically

Thanks garmanma! Autorun was not enabled in the registry, I have corrected that and now when I insert a blank disc the dialog comes up to ask me what I want to do but there are no selections available, the box is empty! I checked the properties on the drive and all of the other disc types have the options but there are none for the blank disc and I can't get any to appear???
