Windows 7: CD Drive wont burn CDs

CD Drive wont burn CDs

my CD drive will not burn any CD, it reads them ok when i put in an audio cd or a driver CD but everytime i try to burn something it fails. Is is very loud when tryin to do this and seems to be reving up and stoppin before it spits out the CD. I have tried burning with Nero, what i always use and also tried WMP and got the same result. Could the disk drive be broke?? is there a command i can run in cmd maybe like chkdsk to check it??

Type trouble shooter in start menu Search bar. Then click on "Find and Fix problems".

Intop Snip.
Check mark box all the way at bottom toward left side "Get the most up to date".
Then Click View all - I circled below in yellow.

Bottom Snip highlighted in blue click Playing and Burning.
Then follow prompts in next windows that come up as needed.

Never used it myself for your problem. Good luck.
