Are you using CD-R or CD-RW disks and are they the same type as you were using before?

Sometimes drives can be fussy about brands too.

EDIT:
Typo - changed DVD to CD.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

in the interim you may want to save the photos to a usb drive and then possibly burning them on a different PC....better to be safe than sorry....

Is it only with photos or do all files refuse to copy?

If the disks aren't bad then maybe it's the CD/DVD burner that is.

'but now i can't copy photos to a cd. '
Are you trying to use cdrw's? Why not burn them to a CD or DVD? A permanent copy is MUCH better than a cdrw....
