Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

CD/DVD drive on e-Machine T3120 reads disc, but won't write disc!

\015 Hi all,I have an eMachine T3120 that came equipped with a CD/DVD writer. The drive worked fine at first, but suddenly it won't burn CDs anymore! It continues to read them just fine. I feel a little over my head with all this tech stuff, but I'd really like to fix this problem without going to a repair shop! Any advice, anyone? The help is greatly appreciated. :)Thank you!\015
