CD Burner won't Burn ??

Guest

I have been trying (after a significant crash ... trying to save as much as I
can) to burn some folders/files, music,etc. to both CD-RW, (and DVD-RW for
extra space)
The CD Rom kicks out, and blah,blah, blah about can't install ... insert an
unused disk ...
How can I get the burner to acknowledge the empty disc, and burn to it ....
Also, those that had been burning "close" after a burn ... menu shows "0"
space available.

Please excuse my "buzz" .... I've been working with this @%^&*$ thing for 3
days now and it just seems to get worse ... I have ALL of my music, and my
photos, and programs that I'm desparetly trying to save.
Thanks for any help ----

I'm using Nero 7 ... it won't let me erase the cd ... but then shows up as 0
left. The files I can locate, won't let me burn them.

Is the IMAPI service running?

Right click My Computer, choose Manage.
From Services and Applications, choose Services.
Scroll down to the IMAPI service. Start it if needed and set to Automatic
from the drop down list.

Does that help? Let us know.

Hey Maincat
Thanks for your response.
I tried the procedure twice, but I still can't get this mean mule from
cooperating.
After doing the IMAPI, I made sure it showed "Automatic", still, when I
bring up the
Drive D: icon, it shows as "Free space - 0 bytes", and "Total size - 0
bytes". This was with a blank CD-RW in it.
I get the message "The current media loaded is not Re-Writable, change media
and try again"
When I tried to burn a few songs, I get the message "No supported media
type. Please insert a Writable CD-R or CD-RW and try again."

I am really needing to get to the point so that i can save all of my music (
a WHOLE lot) because the pc acts like it is going to crash on me.

Again, thanks for your reply ...
I'll be watching for update.
