While burning a c d it was ejected living the last few data unburned and the disc is not finalised so c d does not play on any device.
the source data file is deleted. Is there any way out to finalise the cd ?

There can be several reasons, here are some things to check.
The file your are trying to burn is corrupt in some way, or is too large for the disk.
The CD's you are using are not 100% compatible with your burner, try a different brand or type.
The CD's are simply from a bad batch, it happens, and most of the time when an error is encountered, its the fault of the disk itself.
Burn at a slower rate.

There is also a check box when you send the files to the CD/DVD drive and it prompts you that you have files waiting to be written. When the wizard launches the box should be on the very first page and asks you if you want to Finalize the CD.

Not a partial burn like that. That disc is now a coaster, unless it was -RW media, in which case just erase it and reburn.

It could also be your drive on it's way out if it partially burned something. Try using a burner program (there are free ones out there) besides Windows Media Player and see if the same thing happens, I actually use Media Monkey and it does essentially the same thing as WMP with more options. You may simply need to update Windows Media Player.
