Try using any other Burning Apps and see if the problem persists.
I would rather advice you to deactivate the IMAPI [image mastering AP,it is the DEFAULT Windows XP utility to burn CDs]so that there is no conflict between the Burning Apps and WinXp default burner
For Deactivating the disk burning service from Windows ,
1.Click Start/Run .
2.Type in msconfig
3.Within Services tab unselect the service 'IMAPI-CD-Burn-COM-Service'
Now try to burn image using any Burning Apps.
