Can CD-R/RW Drives burn themselves out? Mine doesn't burn anymore. It reads CDs fine, but when it comes to burning I'll get like the first 4-6 tracks on a music CD and anything after that is trash. Any help would be appreciated. I just want to make sure my Drive is busted before I go get a new one.

Sometimes if your computer hard drive can not sustain the data rate it should. I had the same problem. When your hard drive gets to the outer rings, it slows down a lot.

Is there anything I can do about this? Is it time for me to get a new drive?

Western Digital 74 Gb? Seagate 74 Gb? Caviar 74 Gb? Other 74 Gb?

Model number?

Have you tried another burning program? Reinstalling the drivers? CD-Burning program?

The model number for my LG CD-R/RW Drive is GCE 8481B. I've tried Nero Burning Rom, Roxio, and the basic Windows XP.

It appears that your CD burner is picky about the CDs you put in it. Try a different brand. Something a little higher in quality, maybe.

  1. Close extraneous applications.
  2. Burn at a slower speed.

Odds are the data transfer from your hard drive to the CD isn't fast enough to keep up with the drive speed and cache buffer. I had similar problems on another PC I own, slowing the actual burn speed solved the problem.
