Default CD-RW, read but doesn't write!

Hello, i got a problem, the problem is... i recently bought a new yet cheap CD-RW, it reads, but not that well, and it used to write, but I've had problems with writing cd's before.

Now my CD-RW doesn't write any CD's, and if it tries to read, it's simply fails, yet the cd-rw's are still readable.

So my question is.. what is going on and how do i solve this problem?

What is the drive and please tell us the rest of your PC's components, its operating system and what burning programs have you tired. Also what media have you tried?

CD-RW or CD-R or anything else youve tried.

I had the same problem on my dell.

If all you want to do is burn music to CD's have you tried the windows media player yet, it usally works.
