My OS is XP.for the last several days,i've had trouble burning cd's(i burn all my cd's as data).i will burn a cd,and it will say it burned succesfully,but when i try to play it afterwards the light on my cd-rom just stays busy and the cd won't play.i've tried three different burning softwares(nero6,cdburner xp pro,and ashampoo)but the same problem appears on all of them.one thing that happens that i think may be related to the problem is that when the burning process is at anywhere from 2 to 4 percent,the light on the cd tray will blink very fast like its not gonna proceed any further,but after a couple of seconds it starts flashing normally,and as i said earlier it will say burn completed successfully,but when i try to play it back the light on the cd tray just stays busy,doesnt flash,and my cd wont work.i've tried better quality blank cd's,but still no luck.i'm about at my wits end,could someone please help me with this?i would be very grateful,thanks in advance.

have you had this problem for a while? how old is your cd burner? have you tried different media? Have you looked at the media to see if indeed it has been burned? have you tried reading the media in a different system?

i'e had this problem for 5 days now.yes,i have tried different media,but the same problem occurs.the burner is around 4 years old.i can't check to see if the data really burned because i cant get past the busy light on the cd tray.i have to eject,as it will go no further than that.i can still play media on disks i burned before this problem occured,but i can't play anything i've supposedly burned since all this started :tazz:

well,i went out and bought a cd burner,but i think i messed up again.i didn't notice until i got home that it says the recording capacity is 650 mb,and all my disks are 700 mb,and thats the only kind i ever see.does that mean this burner won't work on 700 mb?if not,ill just have to take the burner back.

should be ok. most burners don't support 700meg officially. LiteOn is the largest manufacture of cd burners, readers, ect.
