Can't burn CDs

I have an eMachines T2824 that's under a year old. It has a 2.53GHz Intel Celeron processor, 40GB hard drive, 256MB of RAM, and a 48x CD-RW/DVD combo drive. Here's my problem:

I can't burn CDs. CD-Rs or CD-RWs. If I try to burn CD-Rs here's what happens:
It burns the files perfectly fine, but when it gets almost done finishing the disc, it sits for about five minutes and then says "An error occurred".

It won't erase CD-RWs. What is wrong and what can I do? It started about 2 months after I got the computer.

I tried burning at every speed possible. No luck. I use the Windows XP CD burning software.

have you tried buring from different programs. does your cd burner burn cds with files on them. or applications?

if this isnt working you may have a defected burner.



have you ever succesfully burned with your laptop?

It's not a laptop, and I've tried iTunes and Windows Media Player too and they did the same thing. It's never worked quite right since I got the computer. I guess I wouldn't be surprised it it was defective. The computer was only $399

Go to the eMachines website and see if they might have a patch for cd burning for your system. For some reason this is a difficult thing for some systems. Also maybe the Windows website.

I reinstalled the drivers and it seems to be working. I had to burn at 4x, though.
