Hello Djtheninja. Welcome to the Forum.

You can get that error message if you have bad media (defective CDs or DVD's)

To get out of the optical drive freeze just restart Windows. Eject the disk when the computer begins to restart.

Then try the burn with another disk. Keep in mind that if you bought a pack of cheap disks there could be many that are no good.
