What's causing my CD/DVD burner to suddenly stop working?

Question:

What's causing my CD/DVD burner to suddenly stop working?


I was copying my music and videos onto DVDs and CDs until a couple of
weeks ago when it suddenly stopped working for me. For some reason now
when I try to burn music, my programs show that it is burning and
finishing off, then when I check the disk there is only 1KB on each
song, and I have wasted quite a few discs. For DVDs, it won't even
start to try setting up to copy. I'm wondering if my DVD/CD burner has
simply gone bad or another program has caused it to malfunction? I'm
running Windows 7, my processor is 2.6GH, 6GB RAM, and a 600GB hard
drive. Any information or clues as to why this is happening would be
welcomed.
