Hey everyone,

I had to get a new hard drive after my original went bad and after installing windows xp I tried to burn a CD using Windows Media Player. I kept getting a "0xC00D11AB: Cannot copy files to recordable disc" error telling me to clean the disc, use a different one or select a different write speed. I'm using the same discs I used before I replaced my hard drive, and I have tried multiple ones each brand new. I tried downloading DeepBurner and using it to burn the MP3 disc and got anothe error saying "WRITER ERROR [ILLEGAL REQUEST(WRITE PROTECTED)]". I burned discs like these all the time when I had my other hard drive...but I can't get anything to work now. I also get a "DVD Decoder" error when I try to play DVDs. Any suggestions?

Could be the way the new drive has been set up, making it's transfer speed slower then the old one. Go into Device Manager and check the properties sheet for 'Primary IDE Channel'. Under 'Advanced Settings' tab it needs to be 'DMA Mode if available' . If it says "PIO Mode only" that is much slower and needs to be changed to "DMA mode if available", then reboot.
