Hello,

Have you tried using any other pieces of software to burn audio CD's? This information will help you determine if it is a hardware or software issue. You say that you have a Dell. Dell has a program called Dell 32 bit Diagnostics that is great with testing your CD drives to see if they are bad. Here is a link to the download site for the Dell Diagnostic Program:

Dell 32 Bit Diagnostics

Just pick what format you want to download the program as and boot from that CD or floppy.

Good luck! Let us know what happens.

I would say that your drive is bad. Is your computer still have replacement coverage?
