Hello, Welcome to the Forums!
What programs are you using? Have you tried using the built-in burning software?

Windows 7 has built-in burning capabilities. Use Windows Media Player to burn audio, explorer to burn data, etc.

Did you search to see if there is a driver for your drive itself, I used to have a lite scribe drive that did the same thing with any burning program until i found the driver for it.

To burn data files to a disc, drag-n-drop them to the blank CD.

Go to the manufacturer's site, and look in the downloads/support section for a compatible driver.
