I keep getting an "error message" on burning cds. The error message is saying "An error has occured while writing to the media. Enter in a new recordable CD and choose a lower writing speed" I am already writing at only 4x. Why is it not writing on the CD? The cd writing speed is up to 52x and up to 700 mb storage. I am only trying to store 300-400mb. HELP.

According to the site below, the drive can burn dual layers discs:
"The 20x DVD multi writer opens up new dimensions for flexible read and
write functions. This high-performance DVD/CD-burner is able to read
your DVDs at a speed of 16x and CDs at 48x. It also brings fascinating
dynamics into play when writing your blank disks. Now it can even write
DVD-R DL two layer media at 12x, while reaching a speed of up to 20x
for DVD+R and DVD-R. DVD+R9 and DVD+RWs are processed at 8x and DVD-RWs
at 6x. And DVD-RAM can be recorded with up to 12x DVD speed. So how
fast can it burn my CDs, you might ask? Even here, with speeds of 48x
(CD-R) and 32x (CD-RW), it’s at the top of its class."
Apparently a common error; if you google error 4280 you'll get several different versions of what is happening. Some blame the Sony CD's other blame Dell, HP, etc...like I said there is a long list so I didn't want to pick out just one, it depends on your Computer type, combined with the CDs..so go ahead and take a look. Personally from reading some of the fixes I came up with; don't use Sony disc and run at 16x to get rid of the error. Hope this helps..
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.
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.
