One of the most read posts on this blog is a post I did in 2004 on ITunes and Windows registry settings, so I thought I would update it a bit since Apple has come out with instructions on you to fix problems with CD issues caused by device filters.
Device filter entries from third-party optical drive software can conflict with iTunes for Windows. This can cause issues like these:
- iTunes does not detect any supported CD burners.
- iTunes does not recognize audio CDs.
- Windows does not recognize audio CDs after installing iTunes.
- You are presented with this message even after reinstalling iTunes:
"Warning! The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning CDs & DVDs are missing. This can happen as a result of installing other CD burning software. Please reinstall iTunes."
For ITunes for Windows XP look here: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=302976
For Windows Vista: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=305422
Let me know if these solutions work for you!
