Default system shuts down while writing cd

SYSTEM:
amd 4600+ am2
msi k9n MB
1gb mem (kingston)
250gb western dig HD
Tagan 580watt u15 psu
ati 1600 xt vga

I start burning a cd with windows media player, the program converts the files but as soon as it begins to write the disk the computer completely shuts down with no warning. The screen turns black and the system shuts down immediately. Same thing happens evert time, like clockwork. I switched the dvd unit for my other but still the same. Everything is fine elsewise! ANY IDEAS? Thank you in advance!

It could be a power supply issue. Have you successfully burned a cd with the drive before?
