    Either your burner is broken or your doing a simulated burn. Does the CD get warm after it's "burned"?

    Try reinstalling your burning software or try a different program.

    Settle down man, you have hardly given anyone a chance to reply before posting again.

    95% chance your burner is dead. You can get a DVD/CD Burner now for under $30, just go buy a new one.

    If you don't want to believe me, then uninstall the drive from device manager, also wouldn't hurt to remove the IDE Controller (or sata) that it is connected to, and reboot. There is an ultra small chance something got corrupted somehow. The remaining possibilities are you are doing something wrong in WMP.

    My experiences with WMP are horrible, i hate it. But anyway when I've tried Burning music cd's in WMP it burned me mp3 cd's.
