Default DVD/CD burning troubles

Hey everyone. And thanks for the help in advance
I have an ASUS DRW-1608P DVD-RW drive. I recently formatted, and now its not working. I have tried several different burning programs including Nero, and nothing seems to work. The burn screws up before it begins, I have to reset the computer because the drive wont eject the disk, burning program crashes or something like that.

I have taken a couple of screenshots of the error messages. This error message is from using the program CDBurnerXP Pro 3

And then this error message is from using just the windows drag, drop and burn:

I also installed the ASUS DRW-1608P Firmware from ASUS DRW-1608P driver

thanks in advance. help is appreciated

It could be that the drive is just past its age of useful operation. A new DVD burner combo drive is not very expensive. As a test I would try it out in your PC, and if the new drive doesnt work, return it, because then the problem is with your IDE bus rather than the drive its self.
