Burning system mess

hi all... i've a LITE-ON combo SOHC-4832K: windows don't detect it as a burner, and when i try to burn in nero it send the message:

"Drive is in use by another application"

and it fails to burn the cd.

there are no drivers in LITE-ON site for this drive.

Any site to download the driver?
Any idea how to "reset" burning system? (i have another winxp installation in alternate partition and drive works perfect)

Thanks in advance.

As a basic and quick test, right-click on your CD drive (under My Computer), select PROPERTIES, and click on the "Recording" tab.  Is the checkbox "Enable CD Recording On This Drive" enabled?  If not, check that box and reboot.  Also, you could unchecking the box, rebooting, and re-checking once again.  See what Windows does with that.

You could also try deleting the "upperfilters" and "lowerfilters" from the registry per this page...

The recording tab does not appear.

I tried the procedure in your link but those registry keys do not appear in the registry, first i backed up that key and deleted all values, but did not work, so i restored the key.

Thank you... Any other idea?

try uninstalling all cd burning software then reinstalling JUST nero (if you have other software installed)
it sounds like something such as "direct CD" or "drag to disk" might be running in the background.
good luck

What operating system is this? (Windows 98, 2000, XP, etc.) If it's Windows 2000 or XP, I would reccomend taking a look at the following site

There can be a number of strange problems that can occurr in 2000 and XP with regards to CD burning. I've found many odd problems resolved by forcing an ASPI layer. Worst come to worst: you can just remove it.
