Hello,

I've encountered this problem before and the solution below worked for me:

  • Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel
  • System> Hardware > Device Manager
  • click the + at the "DVD/CD-ROM drives" > Right click on the drive which isn't working > Uninstall
  • Shut down Windows, power off the PC
  • Power up window
  • Windows should detect the presence of unlisted hardware

This is simple solution but yet it is very effective. Please let me know if it will work for you. Good luck!

Hello Meira,

This is common problem occurs while dealing with CD burner software. You might want to try the following steps to get rid of the problem:

1- Put the cursor on my Computer and right click it.

2- Select Properties-> Select Device manager under the Hardware tab.

3- Now locate IDE ATA/ATAPI controller.

4- Select the secondary (not the primary) IDE channel

5- Uninstall it.

6- Reboot the computer. It will re-install it for the CD rom.

This will do it for you.

Thanks

If you want to copy files and folders to a CD, the task requires burning the data to an optical disc. For this to happen, you need a CD writer or a DVD writer. With that error, it means you only have a standard optical drive and you cannot use it to burn files. It is not capable of burning data to an optical disc.

You need to buy a new CD writer or DVD writer so you can burn your files and folders to a CD or DVD disc. With a CD writer, you can only burn CDs. But with a DVD writer, you can burn both CDs and DVDs. The one in the image is a Blu-ray writer. It can burn CDs, DVDs, and Blu-rays.
