    dvd drives are delicate things you cant burn to many in a row other wise they over heat and the laser stops work i would burn 5 in row then let it cool for 5 - 10 mins. dvd burner ussually last between 300 and 400 cd's before the start give you trouble this is not a satistic. this is something i learned from burning over 3000 cd's over the years. you could try updating the drivers which could help you could also try not using cheap cd's/dvd's they tend to peel and dont last long in the heat over time. if your dads got an email address or set him one up you can sent the pictures that way until you get problem sorted
