Dvd burner works but won't burn cd's

i have an optiarc dvd rw-ad7210a burner that worked great up until i wiped my pc and did a clean install now all it will burn is dvd’s. i try cd’s and its starts to burn then stops,no matter what program i try to use.
thought it is not everytime it stops about 1 in 8 or 9 will burn a good copy so its kind of a gamble on burning cd’s.all my drivers and firmware are us to date.
so if anyone here has any ideas…i’d have to go buy more cd’s to try it
thanks charlie
