Windows Server 2003 has the CD burning drivers disabled by default. The IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service required by this peripheral device is disabled, so to make it work you will need to enable it. Simply follow these steps:
1. Go to the Services applet in Administrative Tools 2. Find the IMAPI CD-burning COM service 3. Right-click on it and select 'Properties' 4. select 'Automatic' in the 'Startup Type' box. 5. Click 'Apply' 6. Right-click the IMAPI CD-burning COM service and select 'Start' 7. Click 'OK'
NOTE: With some third-party software, you may be able to burn CDs without starting the IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service.
