Hi All; this is my first post. Hope you can help. Windows media player11 works great until I try to burn my "burn" list, then I get a message at top to connect to a recording device and restart burn. I have gone through the setup several times and both CD & DVD burner are set up as default on media player. I have also unistalled media pl :thumbsup: ayer 11 back to the basic and reinstalled. Any suggestions

Some things you can try:
  • If you recently installed some burning software, uninstall it.
  • Use the fix given on this Microsoft page.
  • Use a different brand of CD/DVD.
  • Clean the laser using one of those drive cleaning kits (or if it is a laptop, carefully wipe the laser with a soft dry cloth).
  • 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.
