WinXP Pro fails to write to CD and display content on reco..

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

I have two problems on my home machine:

1) I am unable to record data (mostly JPEGs) to a CD-R using WinXP Pro
and my sony dru500ax DVD/CD recorder. I have in the past been able to
do this with no problem using either the built in windows functionality
or Nero. Now I am unable to use either method and I don't know what
has changed. Both methods get partially through the write process and
fail (but nothing ends up being written on the CD).

2) I am unable to read CDs that were burned by my father on his
computer. The disks clearly have stuff on them and I've been able to
get to the content on other machines (at work, at friends, WinXP,
Win2K3, etc)... But when I put them in my drive and open the drive in
explorer it shows that nothing is written on the CD.


Can anyone help with this? Is there an Windows update that I've
installed recently that causes this problem... Any known work-arounds?
I'm not finding anything on the newsgroups...

Thanks,
roger

    I noticed that the "IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service" was not started so I
    set it to Automatic and started the service... I then tried to burn a
    CD again using the windows buring system. If failed indicating that
    the burn speed was to slow for the high speed media (which is strange
    since I've been using the same CD-R media for other a year w/ no
    problems).

    I noticed that during the burn process I got a few system event logs
    indicating that the IMAPI CD-Buring service was starting and stopping
    multiple times.

    Just to make sure I have also reboot the machine and tried the buring
    process again with no luck.

    thanks,
    roger
