    Recently upgraded to media player 11. Player does not recognize my CDRW drive
    Message above my burn list: "Connect a burner and restart the player". Have
    checked that burner works by dubbing a direct drive copy from cdrom. Have
    uninstalled and re-installed cdr/w drive, have used troubleshooting options
    within windows which shows the drive is operating fine. My music is trapped
    in Media Player....

    If WMP 10 recognized your burner and WMP 11 doesn't, the problem is clearly
    in WMP 11. I would roll back to WMP 10.

    Do you have Roxio Drag-to-Disk installed? Try uninstalling it if you do.

    You are having the same problem as I am. I could not burn with version 9
    so I upgraded to 11. I think the problem is the burner is not recognizing
    our drive. I also have the "Connect the burner and restart the player."
    I use the same drive for burning photos but it will not burn audio CDs.

    I had a similar problem with WMP11 not recognizing my cd burner and I had a
    Roxio CD Creator on my machine. I uninstalled Roxio, rebooted and WMP
    recognized the burner. I am back in business.

    Did you uninstall the whole roxio program or just Drag to disk?
    I uninstalled Drag to disk & it did not help.
    Media player 11 still does not recognize my drive & the "recording" tab is
    not available in "My computer" "Devices with removable properties" "right
    click" properties"
    I dont want to uninstall my Roxio creator 9 as I use it a lot.
    I have not seen an answer anywhere & many people seem to be experiencing this.
    There must be someone who has found an answer.

    I have uninstalled Media Player 11 & reverted back to MP 10.
    I went into "Services.msc" & "started" IMAPI CD Burning com service & put it
    on "automatic.
    I am now able to burn a CD. I can only assume the problem was with MP 11

    I would agree with you that the problem is with WMP11. I had no problems
    with WMP10. Maybe someone from Microsoft will read and investigate.
