I have got 2-3 brand new Sony DVD Writers and none of them are writing any CDs/DVDs

Software used: Nero/Windows media player/Itunes/Windows OS burning

They go upto 10% max at times and then stops and the CD is spoilt

My laptop is wiritng DVDs perfectly, so the DVDs are perfectly alright

I dont understand what is the issue with brand new writers

pls help. thanks

Since it apperently isn't the drives (as they are new), I suspect it's an issue involving the mother board.
Have you tried using a new cable to connect the CD/DVD drive to the Mother Board?
Or perhaps, it could be a driver the computer itself uses to interface witht the drive.
