Why would burning to a CD-R not work with your CD writer but you could burn a CD-RW?

There are two laser eyes in your burner. One to read and one to

write. Your read is most likely dead. Or the chip that reads.

Sounds like a software glitch to me. Try un-installing re-boot and

re-installing your burning software. Try updating the burning
