    I am trying to burn some photos from Windows Photo Gallery to CD but after I have chosen the photos and click burn I get the following message :-You don't have a disc drive capable of burning files to CD or DVD.

    I am running Vista Home Premium on a Dell Inspiron 530

    I have two drives an Optiarc DVD+ RW AD-51706 ATA device

    and a PBDS CDRWDVD DH-48C2S ATA drive

    The device manager shows that both devices are working properly. I have tried rebooting but get the same results. My Windows DVD maker is working ok

    Can anyone assist please ?

    Thanks

    Thanks guys

    I have downloaded the Ashampoo burning studio. I will try using that.

    Yes I can burn using my Canon and Roxio software , but I was just wanting to find out how to solve the situation with Windows and why it is telling me I don't have a burner , when I do. If i can't sort it out then I will just use the other software.

    Thanks again
