i freakin HATE technology. i'm so over it. it never fails to let me down. i was so excited about this dang computer and now i've found something that doesn't work right. this should NOT happen on a brand new computer that i have yet to corrupt very much. and its ANNOYING. but i don't know if its annoying enough for me to actually go out of my way to fix it. its a software problem after all, which isn't like a hardware problem.

its with the stupid windows media player, which i lived without (in regards to burning anything) for a long time cuz my last computer failed to recognize my disk drives after i installed some software (then removed it...it fucked with the registry). but i was excited to have it working again, cuz its so much simpler than using an extra program for burning, since its all integrated into XP and all that.

so what does THIS one do. well it has some sort of problem figuring out what to do with a blank disk. all is well when i go to burn something. it says insert blank disk. and so i do. then it freaks out for a little while and then says all the tracks "will not fit", as in each one of them won't and that "the cdr is in use". its effed up. i tried looking up the error (its not an error message, its just a message, so i can't find anything about it on the official sites) cuz i figured SOMEONE must have had the same problem at some point, as someone always does. someone did. TWO someones. ONLY two someones. one didn't have their question answered and another one did with incorrect info. so. i'm effed as far as that's concerned.

but my computer comes equipped with no less than three other burning softwares (Sonic, real player and whatever Media Center is). all of these seem to work fine. i think. but i'm PISSED about the media player thing. i wonder if reinstalling media player 10 would help.

also, i have a light scribe drive thingy where it labels right on disks, but i can't figure out how to use it. none of these programs seem to have an option for that.

any ideas?
