samsung cdr/rw sw-252f burner

I keep getting the error message 4280 when trying to burn anything. I have disabled and then enabled the burner, done a dianostic test on the burner and my xp home system, it tells me that everything is working correctly. But alas I STILL CANNOT BURN ANYTHING. PLEASE HELP ME.

Is the 'firmware' up to date ?

What OS are you running ?

What CD software are you using ?

I went into the properties of the cd burner and selected advanced ets then disabled and then enabled the burner.
1. I am using windows xp home for the os.
2. I don't know how to update the firmware.
3. I have tried the burning programs nero 6 and I- tunes 7.2 ( burning section ) to burn audio discs. I- tunes will not work regardless of what i do. ( buggar) and Nero is the same. I can get the burner to read and upload info onto the computer but it just will not burn.
