Here are some suggestions to troubleshoot a burn failure.
•Try a burn in 'Test Mode' first.
•Try a different blank CD (Make sure it's not full or scratched)
•Try a different blank CD from a different manufacturer.
•Shut down other programs and temporarily shut down your virus checker during a burn. ( Shutting down your virus checker should be done at your own risk. Make sure you are not connected to the Internet and have done a full virus scan recently.)
•Try burning at a slower speed, especially if your CD recorder does not have 'Burn Proof'.
•Try checking the option to 'Convert To WAV First.'
•If you have more than one CD or DVD recorder, try switching to the other recorder on the burn CD window.
•If you have Windows XP or Vista, try switching to IMAPI.
•Try switching to a different burning engine. Choose between Primo (recommended), Goldenhawk and IMAPI.
•Try burning a short sound just to verify that CD recorder can still burn and is not defective.
•Try burning with another program such as Windows Media Player to verify that your CD recorder is not defective or having some kind of system conflict.
