Cannot burn favourites onto disc!?

I spent yesterday re-doing my internet favourites and when I went to back them up onto a dvd or cd I keep getting a read error prompt which says:

There has been a possible read error in operation which may result in a defective write.

If I try and write the disc the write will fail :)

I am wondering what has happened since I have backed up my favourites folder many times in the past and had no problems.

I have checked through the folders and can see nothing strange at all (not even hidden folders). I have also tried to copy the folders into another location and burn them onto the disc in case it was a problem with the favourites hardware or something but the copied file won't burn either. :)

Does anybody have any idea what the problem might be?? I am totally stumped and my burner seems to be working fine for all other files and folders. :tazz:

[bleep] - i have spent all day trying to fogure this out and then as soon as i post i solved it.
just ignore me - there was some weird greek letter gotten into one of the links and it must have been screwing up the reader.
