I would try latest ImgBurn. If that doesn't work, try one version older ImgBurn. The web page should have a bunch of older versions. Another idea is try a CD instead of DVD blank if you have one. The iso image doesn't card if it's DVD or CD as long as it fits.

edit: if no version of ImgBurn will work you may try playing with the auto-start type settings. Windows and ImgBurn trying to take control at the same time can be an issue. Generally I've found it better to disable the built in Windows burner and use ImgBurn unless there's some reason you prefer the native burner. There should be something in Tutorials how to enable and disable the built in Windows burning.

I would like to ask one question are you able to burn anything at all with your DVD player/burner.

About a year ago on my old laptop I was not able to burn anything and it turned out to be a bad DVD player/burner and I had to replace it.

Hi Bongo

I have had my laptop for about eight months now and up until three, four weeks ago everything was fine. But now i cannot burn or play any of my CD/DVD's.

Shall have to find a CD/DVD player/burner for my Acer laptop.

Also if you have a techie friend you might let them wiggle the data cable. Might just be loose or dirty.
