For my Samsung CD-RW 212B drive, the device properties shown in device manager do not display a "Recording" tab. My Adaptec CD Creater software cannot find a supported CD recording device. How can I fix this? Can you provide the info to get the keys for the device correctly added back to the registry? I think they are missing. There is a miscrosoft.com article with the exact same title as my topic, that says to go to registry key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CD Burning\Drives" and flip that setting to enable burning. However, this registry key does not exist in my system, although my operating system is Windows ME and the article was for Windows XP. But I cannot find anything in my registry even remotely similar. I also read somewhere that program devmgmt.msc could be run to remove the device and then have Windows re-install it. But my system does not have this program. Is there a similar device management program for Windows ME? Or is the only way to physically disconnect the drive and then re-connect it? When Windows re-installs the drive will it automatically update the registry? Either this alternative or info to get the registry entries in order would be the solution I think. I've run a free registry scan program that hasn't found any errors in my registry.
