    Do you know what I really hate is when I go to make a cd and for some reason it starts buring than the stupid program fails or messes up. Then the dumb program goes and finalizes the cd. It didn' t even start burning to the cd before there was an error and it finalized my cd. Details free space 0 space filled 0.

    Why does it do this?

    I wouldnt use Windows Media Player or even Windows XP Inbuilt burner to burn any CD's.

    I would use Nero or something similar to do it for you.

    It still should of worked.

    Is there anyway that I can still use the cd or is it garbage. In the past I usually just throw it out and be done with it.

    Just turn the CD over, and does it look like it has been burned to ?

    'Should' of worked. When your using programs like that you pretty much expect things not to work all the time.

    Windows Media Player uses an old outdated Roxio burning engine, it wont even recognise my burner.
    I'll Second that. The music your burning to disc, does any song come from a copy protected disc? or has any song been downloaded from a genuine server that you've paid for?

    I tried to burn the cd once to a cdr and it failed. All the program did right was finalize my disc.
    Without any changes the same songs burnt perferctly to the cd-rw. Which I used dependable software to copy. Blindwrite is a great and simple program for copying cd's and dvd's.
