I have a little problem here and I am not real technical minded. I have a HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-H10L burner. It has been in my computer for about a year and working with no problem. Now suddenly I cannot make any CD's. I have never tried to make DVD's. I can play both music CD's and movie DVD's. When I try to burn, whatever program I am using (Windows, Windows Media Player, Nero, Picassa) goes through the process of preparing and after a while gives me a message such as "burn has failed at 4x" whatever that means. Or I get a message saying the disc is no good. I have bought 3 different packs of CD's. Memorex CD-R, Memorex CD-RW, and Sony CD-RW.
I have tried to reinstall the driver, but that isn't helping. We did replace a networking card a couple of weeks ago. I haven't tried to burn a CD in a couple of months, so I don't know if it was working prior to that or not.
I have an old system, no name brand,Celeron, 1.7 ghz, 512 Ram, Windows XP, I had it built in 2001. I hope to get a new one in February, we'll see. Mean time I need to make a CD of the church choir's pictures. I have been trying to do this all week. I hope you can help me.
Thank you much
