I upgraded from Windows XP SP2 to SP3. Now, I cannot create DVD disks. The option to initialize a blank disk disappeared (no longer there when I right-click on the drive in My Computer). Any suggestions how to get that ability back? Thanks.

You should try using the software that came with your dvd burner to burn dvd's. Or better, use other free software such as Imgburn or CDBurnerxp. Many more listed here:

I am very sorry that I can not help you as I can not test this easily. If you want to go down this route, I hope someone else will come along with a good answer. However:

For burning disks, I would highly recommend ImgBurn (Available on Ninite for quick installation).

It works very well and allows you to perform many disk operations.

Alternatively, if you just want a very light weight solution that can look like it is part of Windows / a standard file operation, take a look at ISO Recorder
