i have a time computer on win XP my cd R-W can play discs but when i try to copy some music it wont do it, see message below

the green activity light flashes in cd player for a while but it dosnt seem to recognise the Rec disc.....

i have tried new expensive ones as well as the cheap ones which used to work, i dont copy a lot and have alos tried music match, real player as well as WMP now on series 9

any ideas, is there maybe a programme i can run to check or something else, device manager says its working okay and the record is enabled in props....
thanks will

0xC00D11AB: Cannot copy files to recordable disc
Windows Media Player cannot copy the selected files to the CD-R or CD-RW disc. To fix the problem, do one or more of the following:

Clean the disc and ensure that it is not damaged.
Select a slower recording (write) speed.
Try a different brand of CD-R or CD-RW disc.
Quit other programs.
To select a slower recording speed
On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Devices tab.
In Devices, double-click the name of the CD-R or CD-RW drive, and then click the Recording tab.
In the write-speed list, select a slower speed.

Do you have nero, roxio or similar installed.

Deepburner is a free option which I find good - click here
