"The highest failure rate we see on computers these days is the failure of the CD drive. It is very common. When they break the low prices of new ones make it less painfull than it used to be when they were $100+. You can get a new CD-RW for as little as $25-50 these days, that is what you probably need to do now. You can try cleaning yours with a cleaning kit, but that usually doesn't work.

The list I use.

1. CD Lens cleaner.
2. Different make of media.
3. Update the flash of the CDRW. Please don't ask me how since you just follow how the maker tells you to. My answer can't apply to the bazillion models out there.
4. Update the CDRW software.
5. And the LAST SECRET KILLER TEST I do if the user thinks the CDRW should work and doesnt?

I get a KNOPPIX CD, boot that and try K3b to record the CDR. More about that at

Or you just get a new CDRW...
