Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but here goes: Two nights ago I tried burning a CD using musicmatch and my external burn drive. Never had a problem before. This time, the burn got to about 10% and then froze--the CD kept spinning, but the burn failed. Tried this 3 or 4 more times, with different mp3 files, same problem. Reinstalled musicmatch, same problem. Tried the internal burn drive, same problem. Tried Nero instead of musicmatch, same problem--the burn got to about 3%. Did a virus scan in safe mode and only came up with a couple spyware. Restored my saved registry and multimedia setup and everything seemed to be okay for two burns. Now I'm experiencing the same problem. Always freezes at 10%. I'm now at a loss as to what to do. Using Windows 2000. Please help! P.S. I should add: Last month I tried to backup with my system with Sonic Simple Backup, using my external burn drive and DVDs. Everything got off to a good start, but the backup froze at an early point. I tried several times and followed Sonic's suggestions for resolving the problem, but eventually gave up.
