    Try repairing permissions and zapping the PRAM.

    Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility repairs permissions.

    Zapping the PRAM is here:

    It may be dirt has gotten in the drive, or you have a set of some bad disks. Are your media which is purchased as jewelcase encased (not spindle) Verbatim, Kodak, Sony, or Imation CD-Rs?
    Are you burning at under the speed rated for the media?
    Are you running no background tasks while trying to burn?

    Well, who was to know that not all CDs work the same... I usually use TDK, but thy are getting hard to find here in Caracas, the ones that di not work are: Imation 1X-52X and Princo 2X-56X, now I know not to buy above 48X, the ones I found and work well are Maxell 48X.

    Thank you very much A Brody, for taking the time to help me, I was really worried, but I guess you learn something new every day, and I learn a lesson on Cds... once again THANKS!!!!

    Funny. Maxell here in the U.S. is worse than Imation. Perhaps in different markets they sell better materials!
