unble to burn discs- makes Windows unstable

This is what one of my flock gets when he tries to burn a CD/DVD.
O/S - XP Pro
I did not ask what burn program he is using [Third Party-] that occurred to me later
So this may be a possible cause.

To burn DVDs you need third party software

I think he does use a third part software but which I know not.
