I have been able to use my DVD burner for the last few years. I took about four months off from burning and when I tried the other day, I got this error message from Roxio Easy EZ CD & DVD Creator 6.0:
e80041930 trackwriter error - wait failed [t7123]

That seemed odd as I've never had any issues before. I know this is an old program but it has worked perfectly in the past. I tried burning a music cd and it worked perfectly. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling roxio to no avail. I also tried to download and run ImgBurn amd got the following error message.

I have no clue and the other threads that I have seen are way over my head. I am guessing the drive is good because it works for everything except DVDs. I hate wasting DVDs with no clue of what I'm doing. I would be grateful if you have any advice.

I'm running Windows XP and the burner is a Pioneer DVR-112D

The drive uses different lasers for CDs and DVDs. Very possible to have a burned out DVD laser while the CD laser works fine. Will it play back DVDs?

It does play back DVDs. Sorry, I forgot to mention that. My wife also plays Sims 3 which I think is a DVD game.
