    Same thing happened to me, I found that the something was happening in the burning processes, either the system recources were diverted somewhere else or I hit the tower. Maybe it is the CD-RW drive

    Make sure you have ALL the cd patches from windows updates there were a few that involved problems reading burned cd's and such.
