here are some things to try :
1. go to display manager and look for yellow '!' and red 'x' in the CD/DVD devices
2. remove CD/DVD devices using device manager, reboot, let windows reinstall devices
3. check the IDE cable connection. if the cable is gray with a red stripe look here.
4. check the master/slave jumper
5. if you are impatient run CDGONE
6. have a friend/expert look at your registry for upper & lower filters and remove them
7. try devices in a similar vintage PC(newer devices may not work in an older PC)
8. for xp - http://www.geekstogo...=ST&f=9&t=43863, posts 4 & 5
9. try a known good CD. try different manufacturer CD. burn at a slower rate.

if the devices just quit working out of the blue: try 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 9
if hardware was changed: 1, 2, 3, 4, 7
if CD/DVD burning software was removed: 1, 2, 5, 6, 8
