Before, the best way around it is to use a piece of specialised burning software - I use Nero 6 v 6.6.0/14 - and believe me when I say that I have never had problems with the Nero systems, however, I believe that the Windows CD software alters with every update, so a perfectly good recording cannot be read by a later update!
Try Nero or one of the other very good market brands.
Using windows xp pro(sp2)
was once able to copy files to a cd using win xp's built-in software but later for reasons beyond me the files are copied to the cd(temporarily) and after enabling the writing process it shows that the file it being burnt, however, the cd remains blank after the process is completed.
Suggestion as to why this is so and possible solution would be greatly appreciated... thanks
