Can't burn cds with any programs

I use windows XP MCE on a Sony VIAO and I am having problems burn cds. I used Windows Media Player 11 to burn music cds. When I burn the cd it seems to freeze after analizing all of the songs then beginings to write to the cd. It tells me that the disc I using is dirty or I need to use a different cd and burn a lower speed. I tried different blank cds and I get the same error. I have tried to use other music programs and they freeze up too when writing to the blank cd. The weird thing is I can still burn and rip DVDs. Can anyone help me!!!!

(NT) Time to try another burner. They aren't so expensive.

Drives do that.

They'll go half dead. Quite annoying and very profitable to service counters. They'll reload the OS and maybe more before swapping the drive.

Try another drive fast.
