My CD writer ejects CD-Rs with a message "lead out error".  I have tried it in both XP as well as Win 98.  I have also taken the CD Writer (Samsung) to the service centre but no use.  Advice me what could be the problem.

unfortunately your CDRW unit is dead. It can't close sessions anymore ... that's how it usually happens when CDRWs  die. Expect power calibration errors too.
Maybe writing at lower speeds will grant your CDRW unit to write a few more CDs, but anyway the tool ended it's life.

Burner software? Writer model? Type of burn? Without more info...sounds like you've chosen the wrong media...try CDRW? Are you trying to "overburn"? Please give more info...T

OS: WinXP and Win98, Burner: Nero6, CD-R used:  Samsung 48X, CDs burnt at 32/40X.  No overburns.  The writer could not complete the session and often gives at sound "zoooop" as if the spindle motor gives out... I have already taken the unit to the service centre..... but of no use.

Samsung Service centre has taken service charges (Rs 350 Indian Rupees) but the problem remains as it is.   The Service Engineer advised me to go in for new product that are available in the market now.

as I said, it's dead. That's no news. But they shouldn't charge you if they didn't fix the problem (as I said: it can't be fixed)  and if it's still under warranty they should replace it with a new one.
