    i've got a bunch of music i need to burn. i bought a stack of Maxell CD-R 800 minute 700 MB cd's.

    i'm trying to burn the cd's like i've always done. ALWAYS. i press the right buttons and click the right places. it doesn't make since! i've tried to burn everything from black sabbath to david bowie to Ramstein. it won't burn! as soon as it starts it reads out that the song is 98 or 100 % done and the disk is 3 or 5 percent completed and .. it.. stays there! i've even left it for an hour and it still says the same thing. i try to close the program and it won't not even with ctrl alt del. and then i can't play anything with windows media player.

    i use Nero to burn my cd's (because windows media player never works to burn them.)

    has anyone else ever had this problem or know what i can do? i've got 50 usless pieces of plastic here.

    thanks

    I use Nero also,I have had no problems with it.Best thing to do is try a different type cd-r.I have used sony,maxell and dura-brand cd-r's with no problems.What type of burner do you have?Not that it matters.My old sony burner does'nt work as good as it used to.

    i don't know what brand burner, but it came with my dell a couple years ago.

    i just fine it weird that it worked great untill i got this new brand. before i used cd's with 2 sides. the slightly green side is the one you used so i don't remember the brand.

    Hmm,I don't know.Just try another brand and see if it works.If you have a friend with a burner,let them try one of the maxells and see if it works.

    Some disks are copy protected these days and won't transfer to the CD format (but you could still dub on cassette -or for example protected DVD to VHS) but I doubt any Sabbath disks are new enough to have that. Unless they're new releases of old albums.

    Lars Ulrich of Metallica would not approve of your activities young man!
