C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Local Settings\Temp

Windows XP: delete all files in C:/WINDOWS/TEMP and all files in

C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Local Settings\Temp

Check your drives with ScanDisk or Norton Disk Doctor, then Defragment them after. Then restart your computer before attempting to write a CD.
                This is recommended to lessen the chance of corrupting data as it is being written to the CD.

If you experience problems, try closing programs running in the System Tray. such as virus scanners, AIM, ICQ, etc. while you burn CD's.
