I already...

1) Right click My Computer > Manage > Service and Application > Services > Setting IMAPI CD_Burning COM Service to automatic

2) The IMAPI CD Burning COM Service in the Run > msconfig > Services is always in "stopped". I already tried enabling it but its status doesnt change

3) Right click CD Drive > Recording > Check "Enable CD Recording in this Drive"

Additional Info:
CD Drive: HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H55L
Media: DVD-R
Just recently bought this drive


Anyone know how to fix this?

Re: How do I open Windows XP CD Writing Wizard?

Hi Rude,

The Writing Wizard only opens when you're ready to write files to CD.
Remember that XP can't write DVD's.

As a test, insert a blank CD and Drag some files to the CD Drive .
This should start the whole writing process. Either a bubble will appear in your system tray stating there are files waiting to be burnt to CD, or you can see the option Write These Files to CD in My Computer.

Alternatively, use a CD Burning program such as Nero or Roxio.

I used to could drag and drop files on the DVD when I was using a XP Media Center Edition...by any chance do you know what was causing this?

POADB is right. If your drive isnt certified by Microsoft, you will have to find updated drivers/ATAPI drivers.

Where can I find these drivers that will let me do the drag and drop method?

Rude, the best option you have is to use 3rd party software.

Nero or Roxio are just 2.

Yes, but you do it from within the application.

For example, you start Nero Burning Rom. Browse using the file browser in Nero to the files you want. Select and drag to the burn window. Click burn :)
