Broken In
Here's the situation. My desktop's HDD croaked (seagate is no longer my trusted brand...it croaked in about 3 years only!), and hence i had to get my laptop out that has vista pre-installed (legal). I bought the WD 1 TB caviar HDD but in order to format it and create partitions, i have to burn its software tool onto a CD. I downloaded the image file from WD's website.

This is the first time i am burning a CD with Vista. I have tried roxio (that comes pre-installed with Vista), Imgburn, and the IsoRecorder powertoy for vista and they have all given me coasters. The discs are recognized as blank, and get written to and closed, but the next time i insert the CD, it again shows up as blank! How do i diagnose the problem and how do i solve it!? The only clue so far has been provided by imgburn...will paste the log in the next post.
