Is no longer possible to write on the drive CD - RW with Windows XP SP3. Could write to the drive of CD-ROM under Windows XP SP1. How can I find a cd - rw disk write access?

My Dell Dimension 8250 with XP was initially equipped with Roxio Easy CD Creator which enabled me to write on the CD drive (NEC CD - RW NR-9100). Later found out that the installation of Service Packs (2 or 3) disabled this feature. In an attempt to burn a CD will result in cancellation error during the writing process. Running MS Fixit tells me that my records are incapable of burning. I tried to uninstall Roxio Easy CD Creator via the Control Panel Add/Remove Harware/software and then reinstalled Easy CD Creator. Upon restart, this caused re-installing my computer immediately close with a blue screen message that the problem was caused by the fault of the file Cdr4_xp.sys (Driver_unloaded_without_cancelling_pending_operations). Then, I restored to a previous/y configuration work and uninstalled the Easy CD Creator. I can still read CD, simply, I can't burn. My question is, what can be done to restore this ability of burning CD or what kind of options are available for me to find this feature?

Note: Reading other forums (Roxio and others), I find that Roxio Easy CD Creator does not work with Windows XP. The upgrade to another operating system is not an option that I need XP for other devices that are not compatible with Vista and a later version of the Windows operating system.

I hope that you may be able to help.


Sorry, I wanted to write in my notation at the end, was that Service Pack 1 of Windows XP works with Roxio Easy CD creator that came with the machine. However, after later SP, writing ability fails. That is what I had read in the forums, and what seems to me be a.

This isn't a correct information.  At least, Roxio Easy CD Creator v. works fine on my XP Pro sp3 machine.

Of course, this information didn't you all good... and at this point, after running a FixIt, uninstall, reinstall, do a system restore, and everything you have done, I have particularly good advice to get the CD Creator to work for you.

If you want to try something (with a small chance to make matters worse - assuming that you can now get the CD player to burn using integrated Windows - see the article cited by Shenan Stanley), here you go...

Download Easy CD Creater 5.3.5: this download, however, is an upgrade, and I don't know if it will install after uninstalling the version 5.2.0.  Assuming that you can not install this update in your current...

What you could try - and no guarantees here - is to download the trial version of Revo Uninstaller Pro and run it in progressively more aggressive modes, until you get to the mode "forced uninstall" to ensure that all traces of your previous installation of Roxio is gone.

After you have uninstalled all traces of the Roxio program, run system restore to create a restore (just in case) and then open the Device Manager (start > run > devmgmt.msc > OK), right click on your CD drive and select uninstall.  Restart Windows should detect the CD drive and install the default Windows drivers.

Then, reinstall your current install media Roxio and finally install the 5.3 update.

As an alternative to the last step - especially if you're hesitant to download software from the site of AfterDawn (I don't know anything on them, one way or the other), you can buy a full version (but open box) of Easy CD Creator 5 Platinum for around $11 or 6 Platinum for $7

  • Windows Mail Contacts: How can I find the names in alphabetical order A - Z?

    original title: Windows Messaging Contacts

    I use Windows Mail in Vista. If I open my Contacts icon, all my names are listed in order alphabetical by last name, except they start from the Z - A instead of A to Z. However, if I click on "New Message", click the "To" box, all names are blurred; that is, they are not in alphabetical order, and I can't get a person with the same name as another. How can I a) find the names in alphabetical order, from A to Z when I click on the box 'To', and b) retrieve my contacts displayed A - Z?

    Thank you.

    By clicking on the header above the names of contacts line, they should be used in the other direction. Brian Tillman [MVP-Outlook]

  • I have the software not compatible with Windows 8. How can I install it?

    You may have upgraded to Windows 8 or bought a new laptop with Windows 8 and can ask you how you would install any software that is made for an earlier version of Windows.  Windows 8 has a similar to Windows 7 for this purpose compatibility mode.

    NOTE: This process may not work, but it's a good starting point.  This will not work for each program/driver out there, but he has the best chance.  For software that is not removed, start with step 3.

    1. download the software/driver.

    2. start the extraction process and take note it is extracted to. cancel Setup after extraction finished.

    3. navigate to this folder of extraction. Right click on the Setup/installer file and select compatibility Troulbeshoot.

    4 follow the prompts in the troubleshooting and select the automatic settings option.

    5. Select the Test program when you are prompted.

    6. follow the installation.

    7. If no errors have been presented, it can work at this stage.

    Hope this information is useful.

  • (xp) My computer was recently reset settings default to someone, (now disappeared). Now the driver for my scaner seems to be lacking, how can I find?

    I had a colleague working on my computer, it invalidates many functions, because I received a message from "High CPU".  So he re-set my computer default settings.  I have a scaner/printer Epson Workforce that communicates is no longer with my computer, although the cable and all the lights are on.  I get a message saying: could not find the driver for the scanner.  Help, please.

    If this man did a restore to factory on your unspecified system brand and model, which would eliminate many things - including your Epson Workforce drivers/utilities.

    I would like to start by searching on the host WWW Epson page which is here:

    Choose your local Web site (for example, in America, USA), then at the top of the page choose the drivers and support, printers & all-in-one, then under printers, all-in-one, choose the Epson Workforce that matches your unspecified model number and download the package you want from there.

    Some of the downloads are pretty big (like the package Combo that has drivers and utilities), so depending on what you choose to download, it might take a while depending on your Internet download speed.

    Hi Dorene33,

    ·         What exactly happens when you try to download the software?

    ·         You receive an error message?

    ·         You are able to access drive from devices and printers?

    ·         What happens exactly when you double click on the drive and try to open it?

    I suggest that you scan your computer with the Microsoft Security Scanner, which would help us to get rid of viruses, spyware and other malware

    The Microsoft Security Scanner is a downloadable security tool for free which allows analysis at the application and helps remove viruses, spyware and other malware. It works with your current antivirus software.

    Note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner ends 10 days after being downloaded. To restart a scan with the latest definitions of anti-malware, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.

    Important: While running scan on the hard drive if bad sectors are found on the hard drive when scanning try to repair this area if all available on which data may be lost.

    Hope this information helps.

  • I have Windows Vista - I'm a msge saying that the recovery disc (D) is almost full. How can I transer to OS (C) Disk that has plenty of room to the left?

    I have Windows Vista.  I'm a msge saying that the recovery disc (D) is almost full.

    How can I transfer to OS (C) Disk that has plenty of room?    Thank you.


    I'm sorry, but you cannot move the D: Partition recovery or its contents; It will not work if you do.

    Your recovery Partition was photographed on your hard drive during the production of your computer by the manufacturer for all of these reasons.

    1. If you want to reinstall Windows from in the case of a failure of the system, based on individuals or the keys at startup.

    F10 or Alt + F10 or F11 are a couple of different manufacturers use sequences.

    You will need to ask your manufacturer for proper sequence.

    2. to make the recovery disks on if your drive hard breaks down, so that you can then reinstall the operating system on a new hard drive.

    Also ask them how to make records.

    Your D: Recovery Drive is should not be used for backups, defragmented, etc..

    There are backups on an external hard drive.

    To resolve the problems that have arisen with the recovery D: Partition, you will need to contact the manufacturer of your computer to remove all that has been added to it.

    See you soon.

    Download and run JDiskReport.

    There are a number of things you can do to- temporarily - free up disk space.  The only real solution, however, is to get a larger hard drive.

    • You can run Disk Cleanup (start > run > cleanmgr > OK)
    • You can reduce the size allocated for the restoration of the system to about 1 GB (right click on desktop > properties > system restore > settings)
    • You can disable hibernation (if you don't use it) (right click on an empty spot on the desktop > properties > screen saver > power > Hibernate)
    • You can disable the indexing of the drive, which will also speed up your computer a bit (
    • You can reduce the size of your Internet browser cache (depending on the browser that you use)
    • You can remove most of the $NTUninstallKBxxxxxx files $ following the directions here: (read the warnings in the gray box first)

    But none of these answers you will earn really large amounts of space for very long.  The term solution time is a bigger hard drive.

    In the meantime, download and run JDiskReport, that will show you graphically what files take up more space and seem to so indicate what files to delete or uninstall applications.
