Ordinary office type PC under Win2K-SP4, about 800Mb RAM, 1K AMD processor.
Believe it or not it's now 6 months that I've been not able to burn a CD. With Nero or any other burning program everything goes through the motions as if all was well until at least 50% of the simulation burn. The progress then stops for an "unknown reason". Even more interesting the burner works great on my second HDD under Linux Red Hat.
Last night I decided that I really should dtry to do something about this and found that in Administrative Tools / Services I didn't have IMAPI CD-Burning COM Services. To my knowledge I have never wiped this. Not having found anything else wrong I'm wondering if this is the problem even when using a "3rd party" burning program? The only other thing I've checked is the registry setting at << HKEY_CURRENT_USER,Software, Microsoft, Windows, Current Version, Explorer, CD Burning and Drives >> which is set at "2". I even tried taking the newish LG 8525B burner out and putting my old Plextor burner back in but I only got an I/O device error. Must have upset Win2K?, anyway the LG is back in its' place.
Is it possible to extract ththe IMAPI thing from the CD? If so would someone please type out the cmd. line as I haven't done an extract for about 5 years, since Win98B.
Thanks and Best Regards
