Re: CD Burner stops in middle of burning
People hate going over the basics but gotta ask:
-Have you tried cleaning your read/write heads using a commercial cleaner?
-Do you have any problems reading CDs?
-What Brand of CDs are you using? If you're using the cheapies you should try a few quality brands such as HP or Fugi.
-Have you checked the drives manufacturers specifications for blank disks?
-What recording speed are you using? Try setting it lower and see if that has any effect.
-How much reading and writing have you done with this drive? They do wear out and CD only R/W drives have a history of not lasting long.
-Have you tried running a diagnostic on your drive? Here is a link to the Sony CD/DVD diagnostic tool. Meant for Sony drives but I have used this successfully on other drives - http://sony.storagesupport.com/cdrw/diagnostics.htm#dwn

Go to start and right click on My computer then properties/device manager. Go to DVD/CD ROM and right click and select uninstall. Reboot your system and windows will locate it and reinstall it.
Do this one drive at a time.
many problems arises when we speak bout unredable roms, or rom's that sometimes read. might be problem with weak lense, or a weak motor, or a bad board. then only thing u can do is try to clean ur lense with some spirit, or a CD lense cleaner.
if it still didnt work then it looks like u goota take it to an expert.
is your hard drive the master on the primary cable? You shouldn't need a digital audio cable unless you want digital audio. Are you using Nero software witht he drive? may have to re-install the software, or better, uninstall it, clear the registry with CCleaner (free download on the web) and then try a fresh install.
