I have been burning cd's for 2 years with this computer. I was making 2 discs, it burned the first one fine, when i started the burn on the second disc, the estimated time quadrupled and i haven't been able to burn a disc since. I have used Windows Media Player, Sonic, and Nero and all 3 have the same problem. The information i am trying to copy is fine, but when I put the blank disc in, it seems to start to burn, but its going soooo slow and when it finishes the discs are not readable. I have tried everything else I can find. I have uninstalled the drive, purchased and installed a new drive, uninstalled the new drive, system restore, etc. The drive will read any cd/cdrom it just won't burn. After the supposed "burn" is completing, the blank disc looks like it's been burned but is unusable. CD player says "No Disc". Please help......Mac OH, I'm running windowsXP

Try putting the burned disc into another computer to see if it reads it. If not then it could be an issue with the disc burner itself. The laser could be going bad and that would cause the burner not to burn discs properly.
If you have Roxio or Sonic installed, sometimes the configuration will get corrupt.
Uninstall all application software that relates to any CD/DVD burning, and try the following:
Download the following FREE burner....it is the best burning software I have ever used and it is FREE!
ALWAYS set the burn speed very LOW....4X for CD's and 2X for DVDS and you will never go back to the other burners again!
The BEST options for using InfraRecorder is to burn data discs, burn Disc images and to create Disc images.
I trashed Roxio and Sonic because they are too memory dependent and they contradict each other's configuration...
Greetings, Your dvd drive is not capable of burning a dual layer disc. You need to have a burner that is capable of sending the laser through to the second layer of the disc. That said you can get a DL burner for around 30 dollars. Click HERE to see one from Newegg.com. I am not sure what you mean by 'burns, flip, burn dvds.' but if you make another comment I will respond. Take Care, -WN
this might happen if the roxio is not working properly or in tat case installed properly was it working properly previously.if it was working properly do you remember when it worked fine the last time.you can use a new software to burn dvd it is the deep burner dvd burning soft ware .http://www.gur.in/j/index.php?option=com_docman&task=doc_download&gid=67&Itemid=58try to download the free software and see if it works.
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.
Try a different make of disc, if same uninstal and re-install burning software.
If you think the cd rom maybe has a driver problem, check this link to and try solution No.2 to try and solve.
I'd reckon at 4.5 years you've had an extremely good run from your CDROM. You could always try a lens cleaner which you can get from any good music shop but judging by your unit's age you deserve a newer and faster Unit. Maybe a CD burner or even a DVD burner. They are much cheaper these days.
My first single speed CDROM cost me $999.00 I can now buy a 52 speed CD Burner for $49.00
