Last night I tried to burn a couple Java IDEs to a CD
I was using Nero StartSmart with Data verification and Multi Session CHECKED.

while burning for the first time, the software showed that Burning Process Failed after doing 98% burning.
I tried to burn again but then the data 'burned' but it wasnt verified as the CD stpped spinning .
Third time, I just burnt the data without verification.

Burn process was successful but the CD was detected as EMPTY.
I took the same CD to my cuz's place and viola , the data is there.

What could be the problem?
I rarely use my CD burner so there is no chance of overuse.
It is a light-scribe supporting CD/DVD burner that came with my HP DV4-2126TX

Could it be that the optical drive doesnt support multi-session???
Help needed on this urgently!

i would email or ask hp online support if there been a firmware fix for media or drive burning issues. if the drive as the right firmware i would try another burning software to see if it the software or the drive.

but could it be that the drive doesnt support multi-session discs? I had read in Nero's help, I guess, that some drives do not support multi-session discs.
