    Default CD Writer not working :(

    i have a cd rom and a cd writer, i cant save ne thing to my cd to back up my stuff. it has been working great but now i get a message saying 'could not locate a supported copier'. it worked fine last time i used it 2 weeks ago and today no luck. i check inside to see if a wire had come off or something simple like that after reinstalling program and updating to latest driver etc.
    any clues would be helpful. ty

    Is your writer still showing in My Computer? Or in device manager as a cd-rom device? If so can it still read a cd?

    Hello LC,

    That error message normally means that the software required to burn your CD's is not working properly, I have found it happen fairly often with Adaptec software, it often needs to be updated to see more recent drives ( does not explain why it would suddenly stop seeing it though) but from the details you have provided it sounds to me almost certainly software related, as a test try downloading a trial copy of nero burning rom ( just type that into google ) and see what happens, I recommend you uninstall Adaptec first, if that is what you are using as it does not coexist very happily with a lot of other burning utilities and it's best to be on the safe side.
    If your already using nero try uninstalling then run a reg cleaning utility (easycleaner is a good one) then reinstalling it.

    Cheers Allan, good answer you hit the nail on the head
    It was all of that, adaptec wasn't working and nero d/l had expired so i went to registry and deleted all associations of them both re loaded software and all is sweet
    ty very much indeed
