Immortal, (and ek/Esine), I apologize for my ignorance. Thank you very much for your help. I will install wmp codecs as soon as I get home. I was so wrapped up in the CD-RW. What I meant by fixing the CD-RW problem was that I installed the latest version of Nero, and it worked fine. The version I had before was the software that came with a previous burner, so it would not work with the new one. Just a stupid rookie mistake! That why I seek advise from those as yourselves. Again, I thank you.
