There was a problem burning this disc

Specs: Windows 7, AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 965 Processor 3.4 GHz 8 GB Ram
I try and burn a data disc using Windows 7, then I get an error message 'The disc wasn't burned successfully. Make sure that you have the latest firmware for your CD or DVD burner installed, and then try again.'

It is an LG DVD writer and I have checked whether the drivers are all up to date, and they are. I'm trying to burn to a Verbatim CD-R Extra Protection 52x speed disc. The writer can max 48x speed.

I'm not sure why this is not working, it was working yesterday still with another HP CD, no problem :(

Could be the media you are using is the problem. Try different disks. Also try burning at a slower speed. As burners are used the lenses become dirty. This can cause burning errors.

You can try cleaning the lenses with a cleaning kit. The lasers also become weaker with use. Reading a disk takes less laser power than writing one.

There are two lasers of different wavelengths in a combination drive. One can be weaker or even dead, while the other works OK.
