    Okay, I have a Creative CDRW 32X and it will not burner for me. I have checked the device manager and it says it should be working and I've tried updating the driver and still nothing is working. Is the laser burnt out? I bought a new CDRW but want to make sure this one is shot before I try installing the new one. Any help would be appreciated.:nervous:

    What specific problem are you experiencing? If your Device Manager checks out, it may be a problem with the burning software or the CD's you are trying.

    Well, the software I am using, I have always used. I tried putting a CD in to play and then one to burn and neither worked. The light came on, it acted like it was working and then an error message appeared that said power failure error. I will try cleaning it as a last resort and if this fails, then I will install the new one.
