    Could be a driver issue. Artec's website doesn't list a driver
    for XP yet, although it does say that the driver supplied by Win95 or better should work just fine.

    There is a firmware update for their CD-RW at the bottom of the page. I'm not sure what it does, but you might want to research
    that, and perhaps give it a try.

    thanx man..ill go check it out......brb

    I had a similar problem with an older Memorex CDRW drive. Couldn't burn cd with any software. I flashed the firmware then changed the default driver that was installed during XP Pro install. Several times the optional driver I installed through the control panel caused more problems and some lockups. Finally went into safe mode, let XP find a new driver, all is well now.
