    The problem is as below:

    Whenever I try to burn data to CD, the burning progress bar shows some progress but stops afterwards. Even after waiting for reasonable good time, the writing is not complete and the CD drive hangs (I mean, I cannot eject it). But ultimately the CD remains blank. I have tried both Nero Express 6.3.1.6 and Roxio CD Creator. But the behaviour is same. I am using P4 with WinXP (SP 2).
    Somebody,please help out.

    May be the problem is with the lens of yr CD Writer (CD Drive). Try with Win98 if you can install one on another drive to check whether its a software problem or a problem with the CD Writer....

    I have also found out that I can wtite to rewritable disks without any problem, but normal write once CDs are out of question.

    Your writer does not support Nero or other third party softs. Please check its manual.

    The make of burner is LITE-ON COMBO SHC.

    yes abhijit, it supports the burning softwares. I was using the same driver for the last one year with Nero and Roxio.

    I think the burner has become problematic. But the fact that even now it writes, erases and rewrites to re-writable discs baffles me.
