Enable CD Burning in Windows Server 2003
How can I enable CD Burning in Windows Server 2003?
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 we need to enable it.
Note: With some third-party software, you may be able to burn CDs without starting the IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service. BTW, some people say that it is recommended you leave this service disabled if you want to speed up the Nero Burning ROM startup. I haven’t tested this myself so I cannot say for sure.
Lamer Note: Yes, you DO have to have a CD burner installed or else this tweak will be useless for you. It DOES NOT turn a standard CD Drive into a CD-R or CD-RW…
To have CD burning capabilities on Windows Server 2003 follow the next steps:
- Go to the Services applet in Administrative Tools (or click Start, then Run, and type "services.msc" (without quotes) and click OK).
- Find the "IMAPI CD-burning COM" service, right-click and select Properties, select "Automatic" instead of "Disabled" in the startup type box.
- Click Apply.
- Right-click the "IMAPI CD-burning COM" service and select Start.
- Click OK.
You can also modify start state and start it from a Command Prompt console by using the following command:
sc config imapiservice start= auto and sc start imapiservice or net start imapiservice
