thanks i will try that and report back
hmm i managed to burn a data CD fine, but when i tried to burn it as an audio CD (from some steps i found after a google search since i had no idea how to do it on imgburn) i got an I/O error. it says the device, and under that "interpretation: check condition" then says some more stuff and at the bottom says "interpretation: invalid address for write"
here is the log:
