am running XP Home and I used to be able to drag files
into the CD-RW drive and then write with XP. Now it seems
that it is not recognising the drive as recordable.

(But it will still work in specialist burning software,
but I find this slow and inconvenient.)

When I right click on the drive in my computer the
recording tab is not there any more.

I have read Knowledge base article 316529 and have checked
the registry settings under Drive Type. The value was 2 as
it should be for a CD-RW, so no luck there. I even set it
to 3, rebooted, then set it back to 2 and rebooted again.

Nothing makes any differnce I cannot get the recording tab
back to let me select 'enable recording on this drive'.

I am really stuck here and do NOT want to have to reformat
c.

If anyone does have any suggestions I would really
appreciate it if, after posting advice if you could check
back to see my results.

I have also tried Kellys Korner but it suggests exactly
what the Knowledge base article does.

Thanks in advance for any help.

reinstall the drivers for the burner.
I would also check the device properties and see if it has
the burn tab, if not then your drivers for the device have
gotten corrupted, if so, then remove and reinstall the
device, hopefully this will refresh the drivers/properties
for the device.
