The burning plug-in mentioned was a free beta evaluation version. By definition, beta programs are usually unsupported and offered to allow feedback of bug reports. You are more likely to have software compatibility problems with a USB 2.0 burner than the standard IDE version.
Since Syntrillium no long owns Cool Edit, the whole idea is rather academic at this point. You would be much better off to uninstall the beta burning plug-in and just use a proven performer like Nero.
If at some point Adobe revives the burning plug-in and you are still interested, you can revisit it later.
You can get a free upgrade to Adobe Audition at their site. This is Adobe's version of Cool Edit Pro 2.1.
