Windows Media Player 11 Vista problems



I have a Samsung TS-H492C that I am trying to burn a music cd with Windows Media Player 11 from Windows music library that I loaded from bought cd’s. This is where I get am having various issues. The most prevalent is no matter what songs I select the first song almost never burns. Get an error. Sometimes while trying to burn the first song my pc crashes ie screen skews with colors and freezes. Hard reboot is only resolution. Every so often it burns flawlessly. Copying and burning a cd I have no problems. The media player came with my HP as also with the CRW/DVD player. I was using Roxio but started having errors with Roxio trying to reinstall itself constantly so I removed. Was thinking of putting on Nero 7 Ultra. I like WMP for it’s simplicity. Any suggestions?
