Use InCD that's part of NERO put a clean CDR or CDRW disc in computer then choose format within InCD, if there is a little CD icon in the taskBar right click it and choose format

It might because of XP's writing ability. You may have to disbale it...

Go to > My Computer > Right click you CD-RW Drive > Properties > Recording > Remove the tick from "Enable CD recoring on this drive" > Click "ok"

Also update Nero to the latest version (it's free) at click here

Also run disc defragmenter > My Computer > Right click your "C" Drive > Properties > Tools > Disc defragmenter...

Clear the temp files Go to > Start > RUN > Type: TEMP > click "OK"...send the files to recycle bin, but no not delete. If you have any problems restore those files.

When you are recodring the dic there will be a burn speed reduce the burn speed. So if you burning a t 48x go to 24x.
