Computers change constantly. In most cases this occurs when you install or un-install a program. But there are so many variables here. You really need to take some trouble shooting steps to try and find out why it's not working as it did before.
It could be poor media, dust on the optical head of the Recorder, driver conflicts, registry issues, etc.
I would recommend doing the following to try and isolate the issue.
1) Try a slower write speed as recommended. If a slower write speed resolves your issue, then we have a hardware issue. Meaning it could be the media, power to the recorder, poor cables, optical head need cleaning, old firmware on the recorder, or a recorder that needs re-alignment.
2) Take the Recorder to another system and see if you have the same probelms there. If it fails on one system but passes on another, then you know you have a conflict somewhere on the one system. Coudl be drivers, registry issues, etc.
3) Try differen audio files. Place an audio CD in your Recorder and use Nero or some other program to extract audio from the CD to your HD as WAV or MP3. Then take the WAV Or MP3 file and record back to an audio CD and see if this shows the same symptom.
