: Burns DVD's but NOT CD's

Dec 11th, 2005, 08:31 PM
I have a pioneer 105 DVD burner, and lately every time I tried to burn a CD it fails to close the cd. It burns right to the end but I get an error at closing.

It burns DVD's without a problem. I thought it was my media, but after 15+ CD with various brands to have the same result, I'm now wondering it's it the burner.

Any ideas?

I believe that it has two lasers one for CDs and one for DVDs, am I correct in thinking the CD laser is fried? I can read CD's, but not burn.:(

What brand of CD's have you used? What format i.e. CD-R or CD+R?

CD-R, I haven't seen any CD+R
Its the same cd's I have always used.
