  1. I've been having trouble burning CDs for quite a while now. I use Windows XP and every time I attempt to burn something onto CD I get an error. I tried using different burners, changing the recording speed, etc. but nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated :(

    Ah! The "an" error! Oh i know the solution for that - you have to fix it.

    Just a liitle bit more detail maybe? What error? What burners? What burning software?

    I use windows media. It says it can't complete burning, to change the recording speed or try a different brand of disc. I get the same type of error with other burners I've tried.

    Dump Windows Media and install a decent program.
    Before you spend money, try the (free) excellent program CDBurnerXP Pro 3 from
    The critics are raving about it.

    If that is not good enough for you, get Nero.

    I installed CDBurnerXP, put in a fresh disc, attempted to burn an album, and got this message: "Error while writing Audio CD: Error during power calibration. Can't fullfil writing on the disc!"

    We need make and model of CD-burner, what mobo, what BIOS and all other technical data you have.
