Help! My ISOs refuse to burn!

Ok, I’m in need of some serious tech expertise. My problem is detailed, so please bear with me…

Ok, first off, my system is a HP Pavilion Notebook DV6308nr and I have been ripping iso files with DVD Shrink 3.2 and burning them on to dvd with IsoBurner with no problems for over a year now. All of a sudden, literally, the isos will not write anymore to the dvd! I have tried installing ImgBurn AND Alcohol 120% and the same scenario again. I then thought it might be the DVDs themselves (had some issues with the last remaining Philips ones I had leftover). Bought some nice new Sony ones (Manufacturer ID is listed as “First-Class Media” by some sites). Still, the same thing happens again…and again…and again…! I called, HP, said it might be the new Canon Printer cd driver I installed, so I took the hard route of totally wiping my laptop and reinstalling Windows Vista. Now, nothing is on my laptop, i install a new version of DVD shrink and iso burner and img burn and, guess what? Yup, still the same problem!! sighs

I honestly dont know whats going on. Its literally like my laptop said “Screw you, I dont wanna do this anymore!” and quit on me. I have included a pic of what both IsoBurner and IMGBurn say when the burning fails. Even if its the drive itself thats messed up, I would just be glad to at least pinpoint what the real problem is…can anyone help??

It might be your burner itself.Can you even burn regular windows files to disc?With Windows Explorer in Vista “Burn to disc” ?

Ok, now its moree confusing. I tried burning some things directly through Windows Vista and they work, thus showing its not the drive itself. I removed DVD Shrink and only had ImgBurn and ISOBurner and, voila, they both burned the iso file! Now, the iso WAS made with DVD shrink and, as I have said before, I have used DVD Shrink for over a year with no problems whatsoever! I downloaded a new file of DVDShrink and its back to not burning anymore! :a
I have also tried all different types of burning speeds and dvd media types to no avail. Seriously, what is going on!?!?!

I have included the full log from ImgBurn and, every sigle time, this is what always comes up…I have also tried turning the OPC on and BURN-Proof on/off and it doesnt change anything…
