Some time ago my CD burner would burp about 20% into burning a CD.

Now, my DVD burner does the same!

Am running XP on a Dell Dimension 9200. The software is Roxio 2.4.32a.

The message at failure is "there was a problem writing to the disk". "Recording error: Recording errors often occur when the media contains dirt, fingerprints, or scratches." But the disks are clean, fresh, unused, etc.

Even tried a DVD, same thing except got abut 1/3 into the burn and took forever to fail to burn.

A cleaning disk did not help.

After closing the software I also got a "mediahub.exe" application error and "Microsoft Visual C++ runtime library error" But I have been getting these on closing since day one.

Part of my back-up routine is to DVD so the situation is serious now!


Any trouble shooting suggestions?

Thanks,

RC

Try burning with this:

(it's free)

if it works, then the problem is with your Roxio application, if it doesn't, it could be hardware related.

That did it. Will completely remove Roxio now.
