Unhappy Burner Burnt out?

All hail the ever helpfull, I'm in need of more advice.

My CD Burner suddenly stopped working! It reads fine, but I get errors anytime I try to burn a disk (R or RW). I've tried using Nero as well as whatever is built into XP, and it appears to burn fine, but errors out during varification. Nothing is burnt to the disk. Is there anything I can try before I resort to swapping it out?

Default Re: Burner Burnt out?

If you are burning right then the burner part must be dead.

Have you turned off the inbuilt xp burner before using nero? That's all I got.
