Hello crazydaisy, welcome to the forum
What do you mean by "cannot record music onto the discs"?
Do you get a specific error message (if so, what is it?)?
What software are you using?
Are you burning music files to regular audio CD, or are you making a disc-to-disc backup of a music CD?
What speed are you trying to burn the discs at? I've used the same discs successfully at 16x.
