I am trying to burn cds, and when I go to on Windows Media Player, it burns, but when it is completing this comes up
Windows Media player encountered an error while burning the cd. Verify that the cd burner (recorder) is connected properly and the cd is clean or not damaged.

The cds are new and the cd-r has never been removed from my computer so it should be connected properly. I am tired of wasting cds.

It may simply be that you need to use a different brand of CD which your cd-writer works best with. It's a known fact that different cd-writers prefer different brands, and as a general rule they should all work fine with high quality brands like Sony, TDK, Packard Bell, or Philips. If you buy cheaper bulk packs with no name or an obscure name, many cd-writers just don't like them because they are made of cheaper materials and undergo little or no quality testing. Even if you are already using a quality brand it might still pay you to try a different one as some cd-writers are even problematic with certain quality brands.
