I had this problem once, it was the disc's fault, the burner would not recognise the particular make (Mirror IIRC) That annoyance was also my fault for buying cheap crappy discs. What are you using? Have you tried a different make? How old is your burner?
And, by the way, welcome to Myce/CD freaks.
You will get to know that it is important to give as much info as possible, otherwise you will get grumpy replies from some of the members that don't have the patience for newbies. (New members) Oh and happy new year to you.
