Its a common problem with CDs. Check that your CD drive can PLAY CDs. If so either the CD drives optical head is dirty or your CD pack are low quality. CDs damage real easy. Try putting another CD, another brand or you must use CD doctor-something like that. Did that help

What is exactly the problem, Does your computer have the software and the CD burner in it? What are the steps you follow to burn music? Normally to burn the music from the computer , use Media player or any other software that can burn CD. Pick the music files to be burned from the local drive. Insert blank CD in the CD burner. Hit the burn to CD button from the CD burning software.
it's easy to burn music into a cd first make sure that your computer has a cd-r or cd-rw drive second insert a blank cd-r or cd-rw into the drive third find the music files you want to burn onto the cd forth open my computer and start dragging the files onto the cd icon on my computer
once you have finished dragging your files open the cd on my computer and click on write files to cd,
Are you a smoker? Its possible that a good bit of cigarette smoke buildup has accumulated on the CD burner's internal laser lens. One of those cheap CD cleaner disks might work to clean the laser lens, but usually one would have to open up the CD drive and carefully clean the lens using ear swabs moistened with isopropyl alcohol.
When your computer is in POST have you tried entering your CMOS to check that your system is actually recognizing that the drive is physical? If not try that and then check to make sure that the jumpers on the drives are set properly and then reinstall your software and this should correct your problem. Good Luck
My only suggestion is to borrow another burner if possible and see if you get the same error with with that one. This will be the simplest way to determine if you have a software problem or if your burner has a fault.
No you do not need RW. With the CD-R you can only burn to it once. With RW you can burn to it multiple times plus erase it.
Most cd burners work with CD+R and CD-R but it is best to be sure.
Be sure to try more than one of your CD-R discs. I've brought out a new cd burner on a warranty repair in the past and found that the customers cd burner was fine and when a different CD-R was tried they were able to burn onto a cd without a problem.
well it could be many reasons why it wont write your burner but first what software you are using for burning. it happens to me before using media player when i try to burn music. the reason was i haven't configure my media player to use my dvd burner for burning because i have dvd burner and a cd burner installed. Now maybe you try to reinstall it using your dvd driver the one which with your dvd burner when you first bought it.
