  1. just to add ..system shows disc as 4.38 free ... when i try error checking drive ..it says windows cannot access disc ??/
  2. Can you burn to a CD?
  3. are you logged on as a user with admin rights?
    Try disabling all your security software (antivirus, firewall...)

    and just to be clear,
    your blanks burn fine at a friends house using his drives?
    or is it your drives burn his blanks fine at his house?
