Go into your burner settings and uncheck the box that says erase or format disk before use.I had the same problem in Vista and that is what I had to do to fix it.

Access the Internet from another computer that has a CD burner installed. If you have other user accounts on the main computer, you can attempt to log in to those accounts just to get to the Internet.

Download Ophcrack, a highly rated free password cracker for Windows. The website has been included in the References section at the end of this article. For easy access, download the file to the computer's Desktop. You will be downloading the ISO image of the program which can be burned onto a blank CD-R.
    • 3

Insert the blank CD-R CD. Select the ISO image of Ophcrack that you just downloaded, and right click on the item. Select 'Burn' from the drop down menu. If a burn program opens, click Burn Disc to burn the program to the CD-R.
    • 4

Remove the burned disc, and go back to the original computer that you are locked out of. Turn on the computer, and immediately insert the disc into the CD-ROM drive.
This will allow the computer to boot from the CD-ROM. You may be prompted in DOS to boot from the CD-ROM, select "Yes."
    • 5

Allow Ophcrack to run; it will run automatically and display the administrator and user password on the screen as it recovers them. Write down the passwords, and wait for the program to finish.
    • 6

Remove the burned disc, and restart the computer. Allow the computer to load to the sign in screen, and enter the newly recovered password. You should have full access to your Administrator account once again.

    How do you burn a movie file using roxio easy cd & dvd burning. i cannot get anything to work


    ONE: This program installs a rootkit I believe, although it's a really great program otherwise, especially nice for beginners. Do you have a virus checker that kills rootkits? If so you may have to enable permission for that program to run in your virus checker. If you don't know how to do that, try step 2.

    TWO:
    Uninstall the program.
    Turn off or unplug your modem to protect your computer from viruses.
    Shut down your virus checker.
    Install Roxio again and then try running it with your virus checking program still shut off.
    Try burning a CD. Does it work fine?

    THREE:
    Turn your anti-virus program back on again.
    If a message comes up asking if you want to give the program
    full access,
    limited access,
    or block it, tell it you want to give it limited access. (That will allow it only access to safe operations. If you block it, your program won't work).

    FOUR:
    If it still won't burn, make sure you have a blank DVD or CD in the correct drive that the program wants to burn to, (or else change the drive it wants to burn to if you have more than one) and that it has no data, scratches or fingerprints on it.
