Out of the blue I cannot send a pic to the CD burner.

Win XP MCE
SP3

It will play a cd

The CD Burner is a PLEXTOR CD-R PXW1210A

I have been using this CD burner regularly.

Suddenly today it will not let me send images to the CD.
--
I checked properties was enabled.

I disabled and enabled ...no effect

I scanned for hardware changes...none

I attempted to update driver...the current driver was the best one.
--

I checked the registry

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

The entry/value NoCDBurning was to 0

--
Not sure if this is part of the problem...

Just guessing...but those appear to be MC drivers...that should be necessary for multimedia functions to work properly, using Media Center.

I would say that it could be a capture card, but mine have never displayed that way, so I can't say.

What program are you attempting to use to burn?

This is known...I should have been clearer.

I've never heard of anyone using that application to burn files to disk.

I think you should have said that you use the Windows Media Player burn function...that's the one used when I right-click on a file and elect the Burn to CD option.

Sooo...it seems that you have missing drivers that may be MC drivers...and you have a WMP burn function that's not working.

:thumbsup: I guess didn't really know what I was talking about when I said Windows Picture and Fax viewer.
To view a picture I use Windows picture and fax viewer.

To burn I right click the .jpg file and choose send to CD drive, then a balloon pops up displaying "you have files waiting to be written to the CD"
I click the balloon ( or click on the CD drive to view and I select burn write files to CD
Must be I am using wizard.
The "WMP burn function"



Sooo...it seems that you have missing drivers that may be MC drivers...and you have a WMP burn function that's not working.

That sounds more like it.

None of those...look important, IMO. Routine stuff that happens, without major consequence. I don't know anything about Media Center...but you seem to have another problem with it functioning properly.

Do you have a MCE 2005 CD?

<<Suddenly today it will not let me send images to the CD.>>

Try burning a CD with an installed program from the following link: http://mp3.about.com/od/essentialsoftware/...ng_software.htm. This will help us define where the problem is.

Yes, I have the MCE CD.


Went to http://mp3.about.com/od/essentialsoftware/...ng_software.htm

I tried the first program on the list "CDBurnerXP Pro 4"
It recognized the E:\ drive, I started a burn with it (usually takes a couple of minutes) It failed at 43% complete.

So I tried the second on the list "Express Burn".
It burned a CD in the E:\ (previously not working drive) and the CD works.

Now, Express Burn keeps trying frantically to access it's web page so I will purchase it..(did I say frantically)? (laughing)

Nice work, well done :thumbsup:.

Before you purchase anything (don't buy a burn program)...I suggested that just to verify that the burner is capable of working properly. That means that your inherent burn function has a problem.

At least temporarily, remove the program you installed which worked.

I would try running sfc /scannow with a slipstreamed/updated CD...to replace any system files which may be damaged or missing...then I would try your normal technique again.

I attempted the run SFC.EXE /SCANNOW

I got the message...
Files that are required must be copied to the DLL cache...insert your XP-MCE cd rom now

So I inserted my XP-MCE cd, I have 3...cabinet, mrmpoem_enm and components
I also had a SP2 cd cabinet files from my last install.

It did not like any of them so I followed the instructions on slipstreaming but ran into a dead end while copying my sp2 cd (got the message) "cannot copy Windows_XPKB835935-SP2-ENU: The drive cannot find the sector requested"

After which I thought to myself...Self, SP3 is here maybe you are going about this wrong.

So in summary I have not figured out how to run the SFC.EXE /SCANNOW.

I believe it will involve locating the folder (C:\i386).

The instructions get a little fuzzy there, seems maybe I should copy the XP-MCE files into (C:\i386).

But the directions refer to a restore cd.

Here is where I ran out of ideas http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...st&p=368666

Slipstreaming an XP CD...I find rather easy with nLite, the proper SPs and/or drivers...and a Genuine XP CD. Those are the only tools I needed to create a slipstreamed XP SP3 CD.

I don't know how MCE versions work, but I have seen many posts on the Web indicating that MCE users have created slipstreamed MCD CDs that included SP3.

I don't know anything about creating a slipstreamed CD from restore/recovery disks...I've not done that, since I have no restore/recovery disks.
