CD burning software

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.newusers (More info?)

My CD burner is useless. I have wasted several CD's trying to burn. I have
checked services and Changed to automatic. Until I try to burn and the
burning program shows completed but the disk doesn't work. I check services
again and cd burning is stopped. It cannot get services to stay started.

I purchased nero 6 but it does not work either!
Please help.

    Check the cables and connections. If that doesn't help, try the burner in
    another computer and see if it is the burner.

    Tried both ideas. The burner works on other computer but not running xp. I
    have 3 burners and all work but not on xp! Nero burns 1 disk but only partail
    files. Any other attempts fail.

    Also, check the jumper on the back of the burner and make sure it is set for
    the connector it is on. It should be master and attached to the end
    connector on the cable.

    The jumpers are set correctly to the position allocated. Still doesn't work.
    Everything worked fine until I changed to xp. I installed fresh with full
    version and now I got the problem.

    Please explain how you disabled the internal cd writing. We have the same
    problem on one of our XP PCs.
