I'm working through my first linux installation. Most things are working pretty well and I'm very pleased with Linux Mint.
One problem that popped up last night - I was trying to write a data cd. When I inserted the blank cd the system asked if I wanted to make an audio cd or a data cd. I selected data and it opened a window for writing a cd. I selected the files, pressed "write to disk", it made the disc image and then the window said "writing files to disc" - but nothing ever happened. Finally it said it was unable to write.
Before I replace the drive, are there anythings I can try to overcome this problem?
