|I have done the changes that I recorded but nothing has helped, on one computer I manually started the IMAPI service before attempting to write to a DVDRW but when I tried a CDRW it did not work then I tried a DVDRW again and it wouldn't work.|
I noticed that there was something wrong writing to the ROM about 2 weeks after I had done the registry changes but days after I had changed some services to disabled. But I can see from online that third party programs do not need the IMAPI service. The burning software does not detect that anything is wrong and continues as though it has written to the disc but does not show as written to when checked with a computer that has a fresh install of xp.
When running the MS "Fix it" it will tell me that the device is incapable of writing and that writing software needs to be installed that fails after selecting to.
