Windows 7: Windows DVD Maker

Windows DVD Maker

Thought I'd give this a try and find that it doesn't recognize my internal burner. I connected an external one and it doesn't like that one either!
I click on DVD burner and the drop down list is blank.

Having no trouble playing disks or DVDs (VLC) and no problem burning with ImgBurn

Any ideas?

Yeah, the burner's working with other programs...just not DVD Maker!

Everything in Device M. is fine.

Just a thought... does anything change if you set DVD Maker as default DVD burning app in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\AutoPlay?

Nope! I had it set to 'ask me every time' but I've just set it to DVD Maker and it still doesn't show.
Strange thing is: If I right click on an ISO file and choose Windows Disk Image Burner from the menu ...it shows my DVD drive.

Had the same problem, searched the net, surprisingly couldn't find a solution, only maybees. Finally managed to solve myself, still being not an expert. Try this: 1.Run DVD Maker 2.In the right bottom corner click on Options. 3. Select Compatibility. 4.Uncheck all the filters other than AVI Decompressor (Win 7 original in system32). 5. Press OK.
Worked for me, hope it will work for you.
