I have Windows XP Professional, Version 2002, Service Pack 3. 32-Bit.
It ran an IDE well for a while, then it finally died. I bought a SATA Samsung DVD Burner. It would not read nor write audio CDs, but could write data well. I took it back and bought a SATA HP DVD Burner (HP DVD1260i), which is what I have now. This time it can at least read audio CDs, just not burn them. With both drives I would get a device error when it failed, plus 6 coasters to show for it.
Before I take this back for a third time, is it possible that Windows XP Pro is missing a codec or something that is preventing it from burning audio CDs? Thanks in advance.
