HI Experts,
We just reinstalled Win XP in one of our computers that used to have a CD Writter.

The thing is after the installation we cannot writte on cds any more.
It will perform properly up until the end when it shows a message saying something like unable to finish...

Is there any sort of drivers we should install??

We tested with a new cd Writter and the same story.

Best regards,

right click my computer and click on manage

check the application tab and see which errors it's giving you, also check the system tab

which program are you using to write cd's

DMA access on your drive might not be enabled which can cause all kinds of strange errors when attempting to write cd's check here to see if your drive has dma enabled http://www.real-knowledge.com/dma.htm
