    iTunes Warning

    Lately every time I open iTunes I get the following warning:

    Warning!

    The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning CDs and DVDs are missing. This can happen as a result of installing other CD burning software. Please reinstall iTunes.

    Reinstalling iTunes does not get rid of the warning message, but iTunes is working just fine. It appears the message is popping up for no reason. How do I get rid of this? It's very annoying. Thanks.

    Found this:
    Sometimes, device filters installed by other software can conflict with iTunes for Windows. This can cause issues like these:

    • iTunes does not detect any supported CD burners.
    • iTunes does not recognize audio CDs.
    • Windows does not recognize audio CDs after installing iTunes.
    • You receive error messages while attempting to burn discs.
    • You are presented with this message even after reinstalling iTunes:
      Warning! The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning CDs & DVDs are missing. This can happen as a result of installing other CD burning software. Please reinstall iTunes." Device filter entries exist to somehow modify the way a device works. If you are having trouble using CDs, follow these steps to temporarily disable the other third-party optical drive software entries.
    • Important: These steps involve making changes to the Windows registry using the Registry Editor (Regedit). Even if you are very comfortable editing the registry, you should make a backup of the registry prior to editing it. Making mistakes in Regedit can cause strange behavior and can even prevent Windows from starting. The changes may cause the software that installed the entries to not work correctly until you restore the entries. If you need more help, you may perform a search on "backup registry" in Windows Help.
