I wasnt sure if i should post it here or the hardware section but here it goes. Today I was tryin to burn some movies on to a CD-R. Last week it was working fine, but this week none of the burning programs were lettin burn the movies on the Cd. I use a Windows Xp so the way i usually burn the movies is that I open the D drive and put the movie in there. Then on the left side i click on "write these files to cd". But today, everytime i click on "write these files to cd" it doesnt do anything. I ve also tried Windows Media Player and Real Player to burn em but they dont work either.

Don't you have any burning software like Nero or anything like that available?

The main reasons for the burning to fail are the following:

- Disc bad or already written to
- Drive failing
- OS not recognising the drive or disc

What I'd like to ask you to do is try to burn again, but this time have your Event Viewer open. To get to it, open your Control Panel and double click Administrative Tools and in there Event Viewer.

Try to spot if there's an error that pops up in the Event Viewer, the error should pop up in either the Application log or the System log.

Please report back with your findings.
Good luck Smiley
