If you can copy a disk then your burner works

it is most likely your software or you at fault :-)

read the book that came iwht the burner and see if there is any help.

when you say wont burn waht do you mean?
it makes duds?
it errors??
it catches fire??
it burns but the disk wont read back in other computers??

we need more info.....

You could always download Musicmatch jukebox...... It has a CDburning program that comes with it that's as easy as ABC.

As a bonus, its got an excellent mp3 player.

Its a free download, and will enable you to teast whether your CDWriter is all hooked up correctly etc.

Reinstall the software??

take it back to the store and get another model/brand. or go to another store and buy it.
