Cannot burn Data CD in Nero Burning ROM

Hi all:
I am unable to burn a data CD (jpeg photos from a recent vacation) onto a Verbatum CD-R @16x. I am using Windows XP Professional, ASPI 4.71, A Lite-On DVDRW LDW 451S, firmware GSB6, and Nero Burning ROM.
When I select the files and then click “Burn”, the DVDRW simple ejects without starting the burn process.
Any help is appreciated. I simple would like to burn a data CD.
Thanks in advance.

If you are trying to burn vacation photos into CD-R by Nero Burning Rom then make sure at compilation you have selected CD not DVD function also the drive you are trying to burn with is being shown on NBR opening page…
