Answers :

Sounds like the software your using to burn with isn't compatable with your burner.If your using a software and not windows.Get Ashampoo Burning Studio which is a free full version for 30 days.It supports most drives.Also try cleaning the eye with a cotton swab and a little alcohol,swirling the cotton swab around and around in both directions very lightly.Repeat at least twice and let dry.Put the cd in and try burning with it and the Ashampoo burning software.If the drive is not faulty it should burn without a problem.Also make sure you use cd-r or cd-rw discs and try it on a couple of new ones because sometimes the cds are bad even when they are new.
