Re: Burning stuff
Well, technically he hasn't specified that he's using cd's, but either way I'm guessing he has a cd and/or dvd burner, but it's broken.
If you have a dvdrw cdrw drive, try burning both cds and dvds, see if you get the error on both media types.
Get one of the same disks you tried to burn onto with your pc, and see if a different burner will accept them.
