Ok guys I need some help. Ok, I use a brand Sony CD-R's to record all my music and stuff. Well my friend wanted me to burn some CDs for her and she gave me the Maxell kind and I keep getting this error.

Ive tried lowering the speed and it still doesnt help. So far everytime I burn with Sony CDs theyre fine but Maxell and sometimes TDK CD's always give me that error. Any one got any ideas on how to help me?

Thanks!

* Is it only WMP that has trouble with the discs, or do yo have other burning apps which reject the disks as well?
* Are you absolutely sure that the CDs you have trouble with are definitely blank?
* Please give us the exact make/model of the burner drive, as well as the name and version of the driver you're using.

MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-8318 and yes im positive that the cd's are blank. What other burning software should i try if its just wmp?

* The fact that the drive is a combo DVD/CD unit makes it more likely that caperjack's suggestion regarding compatibility is true. Not all brands of media are certified to work with all makes/models of drives, and even if "certified", certain media may not actually perform reliably with a given device. Also- judging from the feedback in a lot of the CD/DVD burning tech support forums, your particular model (UJ-813s) appears to be more than a bit finicky (read: it sucks).

* "Nero" is a burning application which many people (including myself) use; you might try it (or another 3rd-party program) to eliminate WMP itself as the possible culprit. Nero can also give you some useful diagnostic/test/troubleshooting info regarding your CD/DVD drive(s)

* If you haven't already, try to locate, download, and install the latest firmware for the drive; that might help.

You need to check your computer manufacturer's online support site; that particular model line (UJ-8xx) of drives is OEM equipment which is not directly supported by Panasonic/Matshita.
