    Yes, enable burn proof if your drive supports it, and most drives have for the past few years.
    One of the biggest causes of failed burns was buffer underruns. Your computer copies data to a buffer on your cdr drive and it is written from there. If the buffer was ever emptied before the burn was finished you had a coaster. This was caused by your computer not sending data fast enough to the buffer. It could be because of other programs running, lots of small files, or a variety of other reasons. Burn proof came along and lets you automatically resume sessions even if the buffer is emptied during a burn, eliminating most buffer underrun errors.
    My first CDR used to get a lot of underruns. I was running it under Windows 3.1 in 1994 and even a screen saver kicking in would cause an underrun.
