  3. i have this same problem and i just bought a new HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-H10A
    drive that is in a external enclosure and was able to burn 1 audio cd to a
    cdr right after i 1st installed the drive and that is it...now i cannot burn
    audio to cdr or rw. but can burn data to cdr/rw and can burn to any dvd. does
    not matter which program i use it gets to the end of the lead in and then
    freezes up and am lucky if it kicks cd out with an error but usually have no
    choice but try to just restart comp but that does not work all the time and
    just have to hold that old power button down until comp turns off which i do
    not like to do.

    the reason i bought this new drive was because my original internal drive
    (HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GWA4040N) had the same thing happen to it. except all that
    it will burn is cdrw only.
    the new drive is not even a week old and i did not change anything or
    install any new programs before new drive stopped burning to cdr. i have
    tried all types of media but even the cdr media i was using in old drive that
    i know works will not work in either drive. some thing strange is going on
    because this is happening to alot of people and is not limited to a certain
    brand of cd/dvd writer or computer and nobody seems to have a fix. flashing
    firmware does not work, different media does not work and even buying a new
    drive does not work. it sounds to me like some one, like sony and their
    rootkit could be the cause. all i know is that this is really making me
    angry...lol. i could see if this was an isolated incident but it is not. the
    dell forum has 20++ pages of posts about same thing and many other forums do
    also. and not a one has a way to fix besides re-installing windows but even
    then problem always returns.
