    I have an HP Pavilion, with a 500 mhz PII, 192 megs of ram, win98se... I bought
    a Philips 4x4x6 cd burner, came with ez cd creator. I get the error, scsi target error, scsi/ide error, could not perform end track, write failed evry time I try to burn audio. I can burn data no problem. I assumed I had a bad drive, (its usb by the way) so I got and hp usb cd writer, and I still cannot burn audio, get the same errors. Ive tried nero, and acoustica mp3 burner, and none will allow me to burn audio from mp3... any help would be appreciated. Support at nero, adaptec, philips and hp dont have a clue... I know more than them...

    does it just screw up when you are trying to go from mp3s to cd? or does it screw up when you try to burn waves too?

    You should probably use an external program to convert mp3s to wav first(mp3 decoder by hpl software). And of course do a fresh restart and end task on everything, but explorer and your CDrw software. If your hard drive hasn't been defragged in a while, then do that too.

    In my experience, a buffer underrun can cause other errors like what you are saying and the software might not report a buffer underun even though there was one. But your computer is capable of at least burning audio at 8X.

    try burning at 2X if you have that option and make sure you have the correct settings to finalize the CD

    and check to make sure you usb drivers for your cdrw are installed correctly. Check for new firmware updates too.
