Update. Solution was found wherein
a. iTunes CD/DVD importing and burning functions worked
b. Premiere Elements burn dialog/burner location displayed all burners
in the same computer environment as iTunes.
This is an excerpt of the solution as per my blog post just posted on this matter.
The results of the solution to be described include
- Using iTunes 64 bit (version 18.104.22.168) without problems related to "drivers for importing and burning CDs and DVDs are missing" and consequently no more error message (See Figure 1) when opening iTunes
- Using Premiere Elements in which its burner dialog/burner location listed system burners
Uninstalled iTunes.....iTunes problem resolved, but Premiere Elements burn dialog/burner location burner listings gone.
System Restore.....iTunes problem back, but Premiere Elements burn dialog/burner location burner listings restored.
Subsequent iTunes uninstalls/reinstalls...no solution except that the driver part of the error message was gone so that the message now read only that iTunes was not properly installed.
At step 12 after typing GEARAspiWDM, press Enter/Return key once prior to clicking OK.
It worked! No more iTunes CD/DVD "importing and burning" issues/no more error message to that effect when opening program and Premiere Elements burn dialog/burner location displaying all burner choices.
I was about to give up on this matter, but gave it one more look to arrive at the solution described. Never give up.
Add On....Figure 1 referred to this post, can be viewed in the original thread post above.
