problem burning cd-r

On debian crunch-bang & Ubuntu 14.04, burning audio CDs and iso images...
Cannot burn cd-r, progress gets to 13%: will normalise tracks, write text file and start to write track 1. Then fail.
Using cd-rw, it works perfectly each time.
I've tried cd-r from verbatim, tesco & phillips
I've successfully burned on Philips & tesco cd-rw, and images successfully burned on tesco dvd+r also..
I've previously been able to write to cd-r

Why? I'm at a loss.

Wotcha James, how do
dpack

a driver issue ?

muck on the "lens" seems unlikely but a quick wipe might help.

have you tried the update manager for any new stuff that might sort it or has some new stuff stuffed it ?

im a newbie to this type of O S but those are the sort of things that have confused me.

Hi,Tahir! Good to see you're still around.

dpack: all good advice, & I confess to not keeping my systems bang up to date, so I'll definitely do what you recomend. I'm pretty sure its happening on 2 different OS, and that makes me think its not updates...
I guess I could try my defunct XP that's still on the hard drive. But that'd really be opening a can of update worms (7 years of updates....probably just wouldnt work)
dpack

if it isnt connected to the web xp should just work as it did in the past(once it decides it is all alone it probably wont notice time has passed it by )

that would eliminate hardware issues if if works .
tahir

Yeah xp is no hassles just disconnect from t'internet
