Problem with my 52246s

It plays cds but when I try to burn anything I get this error during lead in
“Write Pregap Area Error”

I have tried Alchohol 120% and Nero and still cant burn I have also tried different media, the burner used to work what could have happened?

I have the most up to date firmware and Windows XP.

Sounds like bad media, or if your writing in track at once, the pre gap area may be full.

So what should I try to do to changed Wrtie track at once
