Is it possible for a faulty DVD burner to burn DVDs OK but not CDs?

  SG Atlantis® 20:38 12 Feb 06

anything's possible.

care to elaborate?

Not much more to say really. Got a burner which burns DVDs OK but CD burns abort just after starting. Using WinXP and Nero. I want to know if it's definitely a S/W problem or if it's possibly a faulty burner.

It's more possibly a software or media problem.

That's what I thought, but I'm not sure if the burner has separate circuitry/lasers for CD and DVD.

Thanks for that. That's answered my question really.
