You can try cleaning the laser in the optical drive - they sell cleaning
kits at most computer/office supply stores. Otherwise, the drive may
have failed. Swap it out for a known-working burner and see if all is
well now.

Do you mean "more things"? Malke just suggested two...

Try reinserting the CD.

Try restarting the system if you haven't already.

Try a different CD, the one in there might be a dud.

What burning program are you using?

What do you mean? I already did! Optical drives don't last forever and
it sounds as though yours has died. Lots of people suggest drive
cleaning kits as a first troubleshooting step for an alternative to
replacing the drive. With optical drives as cheap as they are and since
I always have quite a few lying around in the shop I simply swap out the
drive for a known-working one to see if that fixes the issue. So do that.

Is your drive actually a burner or just a reader?

The question was, (Is your driver a burner) a regular cd drive will not burn
cd's, it will only read them.
What make and model is your cd drive?
