|"Running XP Home, SP3-The 'record' setting is found by right clicking the drive in My Comp>properties>recording dialog box."|
The XP MCE installation with SP3 updates installed I have here doesn't have that. There are two burner drives but only one is connected. I haven't installed burning software yet in MCE.
That computer dual boots Vista and XP MCE via a third party boot manager program.
In Vista, which has burning software installed,
Computer - Right click on the optical drive - Recording - Desktop disc recording - Select a drive that Windows can use as the default recorder for your system.
If that's similar to what you're seeing in XP, then I suspect it must have been installed when your burning software was installed.
If it says default recorder or similar, then of course you can choose one drive or the other, not both.
When you use your burning software, you can probably change which drive is used for recording - burning - by default - as well.
