I've suddenly experienced a problem with my window's CD writer. The process starts normally and then when the writing begins i get an error message saying that the writing could not be completed when writing a data CD. The problem also occurs when writing a music CD. This is the first time this has happened and the writer was working fine yesterday.
I have a toshiba laptop with a pentium 4 processer. I'm not sure what the CD drive is but there is only one of them.
I've tried to change the type of CD i use. I have a 52 speed cd writer and am using 52 speed CD's. I've also tried 48 speed. The CDs i have been using are completely clean. I would appreciate any suggestions. My Laptop is going into the shop for repairs as it constantly overheats and turns itself off, but i need to get off confidential information and music before it goes in, in case the computer is replaced under warranty.
I would appreciate any help
