    I'm running Nero - Burning Rom on Windows XP and when I try and burn a disk it works fine for a bit, but then says it failed due to a buffer underrun. Anyone know how to fix this?

    must be an older burner ...

    1 defrag drive(s)
    2 kill background tasks
    3 dont open programs while burning

    and be sure that you only burn form your hdd. Dont try to burn on the fly from another cd drive. And maybe buy a new one with buffer-underrun protection.

    btw nice sig ya got ;)

    how do I defrag the drives?

    And it's a Sony CRX160E, I didn't think that that model was too old...
