DVD/CD burning problem

  1. Hi, recently I have been burning DVD's to DVD-R and everything is fine, but when I try to burn a CD, either music or data files it won't let me do it. Windows media player kicks the disc out asking to try a different sort of disk, Have tried using a different make of CD-R but still same problem. Upon using Nero to burn the CD it freezes on 6% everytime, but like I say, if I do a DVD I don't have one problem. I have also tried using a totally different DVD/CD burner and the same happens.

    Any ideas?

    Many thanks

    XP Media Center? Have you installed or deleted anything recently that may have caused this problem. Is your virus and malware protection up to date?

    Not saying this is the case (but possible I suppose)
    The cr@cked version of Nero will cause many coasters (faulty writes)
    This has been built into the software, not nice, but that's cr@cked software for you

    Otherwise, check in the settings, that both CD and DVD are selected (ie not just DVD)

    Also run CCleaner, this helps a lot, especially before burning I've found
