Ok I have Windows XP SP1 on the computer im referring to in which is about 4 years old:

My problem is that after about 1 month of not using it I try to burn A cd and I come up with A write error (it is not A buffer error nor is it A read error) and it accurs about 3 seconds into the actual writing of the disk. I have tried burning with different disks and different types of disks as well as switching the media and i get the same error. Someone please help me!

Most commonly, this'll be:
1) Windows Update
2) Updated mobo drivers
3) Updated CD burning program

I'd bet that it was the burning program.

Anything on your system can corrupt just with the passage of time. Hardware fails and software fails. It's just a matter of figuring out what it is!

Have you checked your Event Viewer for error messages?

See the thing is, is that that computer hasn't had any internet acess/updates for 3 months but whithin those three months I Have burned A few cds... Its not the program either because I used several just to make sure (MusicMatch, WindowsMedia, Roxio). Also I tried different files incase those had protections on them and it still came up with the same error. Im currently defraging that HD though as suggested by another BC member and im whence that is done I shall try again.

It may need a good old fashion cleaning.

If cleaning does not work u might try the drive in another computer, i remember when my first cd-r died. it would only write the first couple of seconds and then it would come up with some random error, so i set it up on another computer to make sure that it was dead and sure enought, it had died. If it did die u can get them fairly cheap these days for about 20 to 30 dollars depending on what u want. I bought a liteon dvd-cdrw for around 40-45 dollars about a year ago off newegg.com
