\015\012Uninstall all application software that relates to any CD/DVD burning, and try the following:
\015\012
\015\012Download the following FREE burner....it is the best burning software I have ever used and it is FREE!
\015\012ALWAYS set the burn speed very LOW....4X for CD's and 2X for DVDS and you will never go back to the other burners again!
\015\012The BEST options for using InfraRecorder is to burn data discs, burn Disc images and to create Disc images.
\015\012I trashed Roxio and Sonic because they are too memory dependent and they contradict each other's configuration...
