IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service

 

Windows XP Pro x64

Default Description

Manages CD recording using Image Mastering Applications Programming Interface (IMAPI). If this service is stopped, this computer will be unable to record CDs. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.

Additional Information

This service operates that cool “drag and drop” CD burn capability. You will need this service to burn CD’s. What is the good news? If you set this service to Manual, the service starts and stops itself when used with some software packages. This is practically the only service that does do this! If you still cannot burn a CD with it on Manual, switch to Automatic and feel safe that it starts only when “needed.” This service may take up about 1.6 MB of memory in an idle state.
