Problem with cd writer

  tobyb121 18:41 16 Jun 2007

I have a cd writer which came with my desktop, it used to work perfectly, but after upgrading to xp, I am unable to burn cds properly. I mostly use itunes to make music cds, but it only burns 9 songs and then just ejects the cd as if it has finished the whole cd. I also have a simelar problem when burning with nero. I can make data cds by using the drag and drop in windows, but this cannot make cds that can be played back. I have tried to update the driver, but as the computer is custom built, I have had difficulty trying to find the manufacturer of the cd writer. Everything else works fine with xp, just not my cd writer. Please help tobyb

Download SIW which will show the manufacturer of the cd writer model etc and go to manufacturer web site and download the latest firmware and upgrade the firmware
