I have Windows Vista Premium SP2, when I try to burn a CD using tracks from my WMP library, the progress shows that the tracks are being completed correctly and the progress bar goes up as it should and eventually it says completed and the CD is ejected, but there is nothing on the CD. The CDs are definately blank and when I try to burn a CD of the same batch on my other PC (Windows XP Pro) it does it without any problems, can you help please ?
Pop the tray open and you will see the optical pickup with the small glass/plastic lens. They are are very delicate (the lens suspension mounts) so get a pure cotton bud and tease the end of it out. You should use a proper lens cleaning fluid to very (I mean very very) slightly dampen the bud and using the teased out end gently clean the lens. Use a torch and make sure it looks sparkling. A lot recommend isopropal alchohol but Sony specifically warned against that (many years ago... I'm an electronics tech)... as it could damage the coating on some lenses. I guess camera lens fluid should be OK or even clean water. Never use a glass cleaner, many contain ammonia.
