I reformatted my hard drive. When I re installed everything, I installed the dell roxio software. Now I can not burn cd/dvds with out using using Roxio's software (drag to disc etc) and more importantly it will not finalize the disc. If I unstalled the Roxio Software my drives do not realize that there is a blank disc or allow me to format it. I know you burn cd/dvds Nativity on xp (if I am remembering right). I am trying to figure out how to burn cds/dvds with out using Roxio. Basically, get rid of this roxio burning software crap.

Have you tried right clicking on your CD/DVD drive and selecting "Disable Drag-To-Disc for this drive".
