  2. 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://www.zachd.com/pss/pss.html#xpcdburn. 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 WMP doesn't see your CD burner (C00D1176) then please check out

    If you are running into problems burning specific songs they might be
    corrupt in one way or another. This is very true with any files downloaded
    from P2P applications like Kazaa, WinMX, etc.

    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://www.wmplugins.com/ItemDetail.aspx?ItemID=228) This should work, the
    only problem is it will not burn DRM-enabled 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.
