Has it worked previously?  Is it a new addition?

 

Post the exact wording of the error message...and tell us at what point it appears onscreen.

 

Other than this...you had no recent problems with the system?

I inherited this computer....

1. I don't even know if there is a program on here that burns audio c.d.s

2. I have itunes, which on my last computer I was able to just use itunes to burn a c.d

 Example: In itunes, when I click burn C.D it says the following:

    Disc Burner:  No supported disc burners found

When I tried to fix by clicking "Run now" using: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/982116/en-au

This error came up: (Microsoft fix it) troubleshooting cannot continue because an error has occurred...

code 80090008

 

After researching the problem online, i think i must have to uninstall and then re install the driver?, but i don't know exactly how to do that, and are afraid to try it....

Also, in device manager, there is a little yellow ! next to it.... 


Thanks! -Stacey

Drive is reflected in system architecture...but not perceived otherwise.

 

IMO, that says the drive is dead.  Drive appears to be possibly 6 years old, which is more mileage than I would expect from any optical drive.

 

Remove the drive and attach it to another system to test this.

 

On the other hand...you have several indicators that may point to malware at work...topic moved to Am I Infected forum.

Two things to try.

 

Open the case and physically check to make sure the connections between the motherboard and the optical drive are secure.  Try unplugging it at both ends and plugging it back together.  As a precaution you should touch the metal of the case to discharge any static electricity before touching anything inside the case, and I'll state the obvious... you should have this computer turned off.

 

Also, in device manager, there is a little yellow ! next to it....

 

 

In the Device Manager, is this yellow exclamation mark beside the CD-ROM?  If it is, double click on the CD-ROM, double click on the optical drive that shows in the menu, click on the Driver tab, uninstall the driver.  When you restart the computer a new driver will be installed.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
