Windows DVD Maker doesn't recognize my DVD Burner

    When I was trying to make a DVD in Windows DVD Maker, the drop down menu in
    the upper right corner was empty. So I cannot select a drive to burn. When I
    clik "next" and then "burn", DVD Maker displays the following error message:

    "A DVD bruner was not found. Make sure a DVD burner is connected and
    installed, and then try again.

    I've done some things to reslove this problem:

    - Uninstalled all my DVD drives
    - Changed drive letters
    - Upgraded firmware
    - Disabled my DVD reader and DAEMON Tools' Virtual Drive
    - Checked BIOS settings (All normal)
    - Checked Windows Update (nothing found for Windows DVD Maker)
    - Checked Registry keys (all ok)

    None of these steps made a difference...

    Sow uhm, if anyone has another solution, let me know asap!

    Thx for the reply Cal Bear.

    I looked at the page in the KB, but that had nothing to do with my problem.
    You see, I can burn perfectly with other programs ie.: Media Player, Explorer
    itself, Nero, ImgBurn, etc...

    The problem is occuring in DVD Maker ONLY...
