Can't write to CD-RW drive using either XP Writing Wizard or Roxio Easy CD Creator 6, using correct media. Dell (Inspiron 4000 laptop) said diagnostic test showed defective hardware. Had same problem when replaced drive. Dell software tech said to reinstall XP & all apps. Drive worked one time only, after reinstallation, and still receive "Writing Wizard Cannot Complete" message or (using Roxio) message that drive isn't receiving command.

Roxio says it must be hardware if XP not writing, but I'm not sure.

Am confused and would appreciate any assistance.

Thank you.

try a different disc (cd-r) and make sure you use a different manufacturer of the disc. There is no guarantee it will work, but it did for me. I found out cheapies are not always cheap.
Spike's advice: Backup your data routinely.
