Default cannot complete the cd writing wizard

My Memorex CD writable drive won't work any more, it gives me a window with the message posted in the subject line. I have the Roxio easy CD creator version 5.1. I'm using windows XP home addition. This is so frustrating!!!

Has someone dealt with this issue?

try using another program and get the latest firmware update... also make sure that your not setting your write speed higher than what your system is capable of in ur writer settings

software and firmware are different. Firmware is the program INSIDE your dvd burner. You have to go to the manufaturer's site to check for a new one. It is the Operating System of your burner.

P4 2.8 GHz
2 X 512 MHz PC3200 in dual DDR mode
integrated 6.1 MAX audio
Logitech duo MX mouse and KB

thanks zerozero for the info.

I've sent an e-mail to memeorex tech support, their website wasn't very helpful.

I am having the same problem all of the sudden. How do I get a firmware update? Is this doesn't help, do I need to reinstall Windows and such?

Thankx a lot
