Tried everything. Disabled XP burning. Burning process starts but after 6% stops. Tried cleaning lens, tried different Cd-Rs, tried different speeds, drive wasn't being recognised as CD-R/RW drive by XP but changed this, reads disks ok, tried unistalling.
Try going into your CD drive controller (IDE/ATAPI controllers, IDE 2 normally) in Device Manager and altering the read/write to PIO. Remember what it was set at originally in case you need to go back. You could also make sure that you have the latest firmware for your drive downloaded and installed.
