Firstly, don't try to burn your music CDs at full speed. Stick to 16x. Results should be better.
Secondly check that DMA is enabled on the burner. Here's a link to help you do this.
You don't say what software you're using to do the burner or what brand of CD you've got. Both these are helpful/essential for us to know.
There's this great little app , Burrrn. It's small & simple Audio CD burner which uses not a great deal of memory , does a good job & is free. Get it at www.burrrn.net .
