Session Fixation Error

Computer specs:
Dell Inspiron 8200 Laptop
Intel P4 1.8 Ghz
640 Mb RAM
Matshita UJDA360 CD-RW drive
Windows XP Home Edition with latest drivers and updates.

Hi,

My CD-RW has suddenly stopped writing CD's. It was working alright about 3 weeks ago, when I last wrote a CD. Whenever I try to burn some file on it the progress bar stops at 5% and then I get a error where I am told about some session fixation error. I've already lost about 5 cds because of this error. I've never had this problem before.
If it is of any interest, I recently upgraded my laptop RAM from 256 Mb to 640 Mb.
Please help.

Thank you,

Varun
P.S. Here's a log entry of the error from Nero

All that was not required but nice to see.

The short reasons for this failure are aging drives, media that is so-so or using the machine while it's burning.

I usually burn at 1/2 the rated medai speed and know when I use generics that it's never a sure thing.

None of the reasons seem to qualify

The media I use is Moser Baer. I have never had any problems with this company. I did not use the machine while writing. But yes my drive is about 3 1/2 years old.
But I don't think that could be called ageing....

I tried to burn at 4X speed but I still got the same error.

Any other suggestions?

more things to try

Uninstall Nero. Restart computer. Reinstall Nero.

Try another burning program: CDBurnerXP (free)

Try another brand of optical disc.
