  1. Hello everyone !
    I'm using win98se,Nero 5.5.My Cd-Rom just started to fail burning CDs.The message is'end of user area encountered on this track';this happens with any type of burning:audio or data.I've tried to burn different files&programs...same result.Is anyone so nice to give me a good advice?I've used the above devices for almost 1year without problems.The Cd burner is a Norcent 52x24x52;I used to burn at 4-12x/slowly,I mean/.What shall I do?
    Thank you for your kindness:)

    It could be that your drive is wearing out. Cheap, low-quality drives just don't last long (although I don't know about Norcent's quality). What I'd do is that I'd open the drive, clean the laser lens and add a drop of grease to the axles.
