Cd burner makes blank cds

\015 Ok i have vista home basic on a toshiba sat. my wmp will not burn cds anymore.i rip in a cd try to burn it to a blank and the process goes normal-showing analyzing,writing,finalizing on all songs in list.disc is then kicked out saying burn is complete.when i look at it there is no obvious burn tracks on discs and when i put it in any player it just reads"no disc".i can even put it back in computer and it will recognize it as a blank disc.i tried resetting my system with recovery discs-erasing entire hard drive.that resulted in the burner working for one day(i burned disc successfully,next day i wake up try to burn another disc with resulting failure).but here is the best part i can burn dvds(using dvd shrink 3.2) no prob.ihave even tried using my nero to import and burn cds and the result is exactly the same as with wmp.a brief look at drivers and disc player shows everything normal.please help i can give you my phone number if it would help to talk in person.\015
