Write speeds are different on CD and DVD. The circuitry in the unit may not be allowing the proper speed for CD burning.

This was the solution. Installed my new drive today and everything works as it should. I think this is the first time I have had a single computer long enough for a drive to fail, and I didn't even think that one laser could fail and not the other.

Thanks for the advice.
