Last weekend I did some upgrades on my computer (failing hard drive/OS) and while I was at it, figured I would install Windows 7 instead of XP. Well, aside from a period of 20 minutes where the screen was blank and mouseless and it was thinking really, really hard before displaying the login screen after SP1 (showed up while I was frantically searching for solutions – and boots fine now so… >.> ) everything had so far started working with little to no issues.

Today, I wanted to burn something to DVD – Windows 7 saw what my optical drive was, had already loaded in the drivers (it was on the compatible hardware list) and read everything fine, but…. wouldn’t recognize it as a device capable of burning.

I go out searching for possibly solutions, and come up with Microsoft FixIt (and specifically for DVD issues if someone comes across this needing a fix.).

But when I see this:
Microsoft Fixit

Microsoft Fixit

all I can think of is this:
<input ... >

white trash repairs - Who Needs a Case?
There I Fixed It

and this:

Epic Kludge Photo
There I Fixed It

and any other computer repair horror. (Really! He has a wrench! IT’S SRS BSNS PEOPLE!)

Which leaves me visualizing

Microsoft Fixit

Microsoft Fixit


putting some
Duct Tape

Duct Tape


inside my computer and saying:
“There! I fixed it!”

So, if you have a working DVD RW drive, but windows 7 (or vista) doesn’t recognize it’s burn capabilities? all you need is some Duct Tape.
