    my cd burner is acting funny when i burn a disk it leaves a ring on the bottem of it about a inch from the
    center of the disk as if the laser is sticking in that spot and not moving outward i tried using nero 6.6.0.6
    and xp's software they do the same. When i use record now it gives me am error message of "no copatible recordable or rewritable
    device could be found on your system would you like to check for updates" when i check for updates none found
    i tried updating my drivers uninstalling and reinstalling my drivers and doing the same with my software i upgraded my firmware and bios i also
    tried using two types of media hp and sony both did the same. Like one out of ten disks burn properly
    when i burn an audio disk the first three songs will play and show the rest of the tracks but they dont play
    when i burn a data disk and put it in my computer it says the correct size of the files shows me all the files
    i just cant open them. any help would be great. thanks

    Your burner might be on its way out. Do you have another burner that you can try?

    And what burner do you have now? Considered a firmware update?
