    Firstly, are you sure you have a cd burner, not just a reader? And secondly, if you have a cd burner, are you sue you're using the right kind of cds?

    Yes im sure, i have done it plenty times before, it has done this before but im not sure how to fix it.

    My mum scanned the pc for spyware and did something to it and deleted some program files for some things... could this be why?

    That might be whats happening.

    When it doesn;t recognise the cd, have you tried going onto 'my computer' or 'run' and typing in the disc drive?

    It is usually C:/ or E:/ me thinks?

    Correct me if I'm wrong anyone.

    Ahh damnit I had this problem. Google your error messages. Windows sets a thing in the registry that works like this:

    1 - Install driver ... If cdrom goto 2
    2 - delete driver goto 1

    Are you using NERO 7 PREMIUM, it can also do that, if you use it, try uninstalling it and roll it back to Nero 6
