    I am trying to burn cd's. It has worked perfectly for months. now all the sudden I get:" Windows Media Player does not detect any storage media in the selected device. Please insert storage media." The light on the attached burner shows it has a cdr in it. However, it isn't reading it. What do I do?

    Windows Media Player uses the system's IMAPI CD burner. The burner isn't
    what you most would call reliable. There are a few things you can do to
    troubleshoot the IMAPI burner, but none are completely guaranteed to work
    all of the time.

    These tips can be found at http://tinyurl.com/32zkh. This "should" help
    with most of the common error's like 8004020E, 80040227, C00D11AB, C00D117E,
    C00D11C9, Etc, Etc.

    You also might wan to try reinstalling the player over itself. -

    If the site doesn't help fix the problem then the next thing to try is to
    download and install the free Nero Fast Burn Plug-In. (Here:
    http://tinyurl.com/u8p3) This should work, the only problem is it will not
    burn DRM'ed WMA's. Such as those purchased from sites like Napster,
    MusicNow, Wal-Mart, etc.

    In my opinion the "best" thing to do is forget about using WMP to burn CD's
    until we get a better burner. Nero 6 Ultra Edition is a great program to
    burn CD's along with Roxio's Easy CD Creator or Easy Media Creator 7.

    Roxio

    If you badly wish to use Windows Media Player to burn CD's and the above
    links didn't help you will have to contact Product Support. There are no
    more known solutions then the ones posted.
