RE: errror message when burning

I think you mean error c00d119f (i.e. zeros, not the letter o). This is an error code generated by Windows Media Player. You must be trying to burn CDs using "Windows Media Player" - you did not seem to know this name earlier. This is not really the best software to use for CD burning. However:

According to this reference http://www.zachd.com/pss/pss.html#xpcdburn
"Q: I'm getting error 0xc00d119f trying to burn CDs...
A: This is an IMAPI burning failure."

There is some advice to follow given in the referenced link but when you reconcile yourself to the possibility that the burning laser in your drive has failed, try to replace it with a drive that comes with a free copy of the Nero burning software.

I'm afraid you have to replace the entire drive rather than just the faulty part. If we are talking about a standard desktop PC then a new DVD burner will cost around £20 and fitting it should take less than half an hour. You would need to determine if your drive uses PATA (wide ribbon data cable) or the newer SATA (narrow data cable).

RE: errror message when burning

Probably the same issue. The laser has failed. Replacement drives are cheap and easy to fit.
