Your best solution (since your USB devices and your network-adapter are not working) is to remove the disk-drive from the old computer, and temporarily connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in the new computer, and then copy all your files from "old" to "new".
Or, try a different brand of "blank" CD-R disks -- the "firmware" (software inside the CD-writer) may not be recognizing "newly-manufactured" media). Unless you can update the firmware (by downloading the latest firmware on another computer, and burning a CD-R disk, and then taking that disk to your computer), it's easiest to "move" the disk-drive to the new computer.
Please go here and download the live update from Samsung. This software is designed to automatically update you to the latest firmware via the internet. To get this service, customers have to install the Firmware LiveUpdate program on their computers.
I suggest you try a better program. It is possible there is something wrong with your drive, but this sounds more like a silly software problem. If you are SURE you have a drive capable of burning, then try this free program. I have a blu ray player, it stopped working with most bluray discs. Found that I needed to update the firmware, but my Windows software couldn't burn an .iso disc. This software can do anything you need. http://cdburnerxp.se/download.php
It is free and works beautifully. I was able to download the program, burn an .iso disc and update my bluray player in minutes.
So first off, you have a problem with your registry. This is a problem seeing as you are not an administrator and the only way to fix the registry is to be an admin. So if and/or when you are and administrator simply download the RegCure registry repair tool. also get a SpyWare scan as well and update
all your system drivers. That should do the trick or just any old program off the internet that cleans out your registry really. If you want to edit the registry manually just hit start>run and type in regedit and mess with it there. unless you know what you're doing i wouldn't recommend messing with the registry though.
