What program are you using in your attempted burn efforts?

-i use convertxtodvd to burn movies, it seems to be easy to use , it converts and burns after to disk,very simple.
- to burn documents and pictures i just use whatever windows provides. never really thought i had to use a different program.

thanks
Scott

I, myself, have never used the XP burn capability.

Many users burn software, as opposed to using the native capability, merely because there is plenty of software that makes burning disks easy and free of problems.

You might want to try one of those programs to see if your situation improves.
