I found this via a search in Google for EXACT PHRASE connot complete
the cd writing wizard
"This error message may occur if the IMAPI CD Burner service is turned
off. To resolve this issue, make sure that the service is running and
that it has not been turned off. By default, the service is set to
Manual. Start the IMAPI CD Burner service, and then test it by writing
to a CD-R or a CD-RW. If the service works, you may have to set the
service to Automatic if it does not start in Manual mode. To set the
service to Automatic, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type services.msc /s in the Open box, and then
Double-click IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service.
Under Service Status, click Start.
Try to write data to a CD."
"A1: Try quitting any open programs you have running. If the problem
persists reboot the PC and try again.
A2: If you're using a previously used CD it may be closed. Try another
CD you know isn't closed.
A3: Make sure the total size of your files doesn't exceed the maximum CD
capacity. Most CDs have a max of 650 MB.
A4: You may be having a buffer underrun error (when the CD Writer isn't
getting a constant stream of data). Go to "My Computer," right click on
the CD writer drive, select "properties," and click on the "recording"
tab. Change the speed from "fastest" to a lower one."
try for an XP update for the Adaptec WinASPI-drivers.
use another CD Writing program like Roxio or Nero.
let us know what worked for you...
