I am running the inspiron 1720 and use windows media player and I have tried nero burner to make a audio cd which I have made in the past and the burner will go through the process and when it finishes it just states did not burn. I have updated the driver from the dell website and now am stuck and need this problem fixed.
here is the end of a report that I just tried to burn.

Hey, am having a similar problem.
I am using an XPS M1730 Windows Vista 32Bit.
My Disk drive is having a hard time reading and burning almost anything.
When I put a game disk in it or any other disk it doesnt read it, even if it is scratch free. The same as brand new empty discs.
disks I usually ude for burning are Verbatim CD-R, sony CD-R audio,
Verbatim DVD+R DL, Sony DVD-R. There are many version of those discs
though like Verbatim CD-R Azo, Verbatim CD-R Printable etc. I don't know
if it really makes a difference.
If I get lucky to read a disc and
try to burn it, It does same thing. At the end of the burn process in
Nero, it says burning fail. The disk might play in the car audio but
there might be some faults like track skipping and bad quality.
Regarding data and other media, disc is not readable at all. DVD movie
backups, it skips scenes. That is if i get lucky and get it to read and
burn. which is getting even rarely now in past 2 months.
I ran the Dell support Center, PC Check up and Ran a test of my disk driver. It passed the tests I picked for it. CDR and DVDR tests read and write.
When I use the same disks I used for the test, to play a game or burn doesnt read the disk.
My warranty doesnt end untill 27/07/2011. I leave in Cyprus and Dell's authorised distributor in Cyprus, is Nextech where I purchased my XPS from.
