Please help me me CD Gurus

Someone please help me, I’m trying to burn an ISO image to CD on my DVD-RW, just yesterday I’ve been having problems burning anything. It does this with Nero and with Roxio. I’ve tried System Restore, I just installed windows xp over again over the exisiting windows installation to perserve my files. It still doesn’t work. I’ve upgrade my firmware. The burning process stops shortly after it starts within seconds, and it just hangs there until I abort it. What is happening. I tried to burn some data on a DVD RW and it burned just fine! I just can’t write to CD anymore, could it be damaged?

I just formatted the hard drive and reinstalled Windows and I still have the same problem! This all of a sudden started happening. This Time I just installed Roxio and tried it and I got a Target Timeout error. I don’t think its the medium I’m writing too because I’ve already burned to like 100 of the same medium days ago. What could it be.

Here is my Log file from Nero.

Use a better tool for burning images (ImgBurn) or burn at a slower speed.

But it looks as if your burner or the IDE cable were damaged.
