Hi Amber,

Before getting all technical, let's start with the easier attempts to fix this problem. Keep in mind, it is very possible that your problem is hardware related, meaning your drive might not be functioning properly.

Firstly, try downloading/installing a different CD burning program, just to make sure it's not a problem with your settings. If this does not help, you should try running the system cchecks listed in the HiJackThis section of the forum to make sure it's not malware or virus related.

Try these two methods first, let me know if this helps.
