So, here I am again, with my serious problem.
I try to be short, but have to explain and document.
Situation: I have been using WinOnCDs Soundeditors since version 2008, appreciated the improvements from 2009 to 2012.
I mainly edit/cut live-recordings of choir concerts to produce remembrance CDs.
I had been happy with 2012 on Windows 7 until I needed a new CD/DVD burner.
With that device Soundeditor 2012 aborts burning for all projects.
Since this version isn't supported any more I bought Creator NXT5. Same error.
Problem: The directory is written, then the burner speeds up to write the tracks, then aborts.
Yes, avoid buffer underrun is checked.
I varied the buffer size from 65MB to 500MB which seems to postpone the time of abortion a little.
Equipment: Creator NXT5, runs on
Silent PC, AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Proc 4000+, 2.1 GHz; 2GB RAM
Win7 Professional, SP1, 32 Bit
NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430, Eizo S2111W
The new burner
DVD-RW Samsung SH-224GB/BEBESATA (internal)
Windows states that the device driver is up to date.
Windows can read from and and write to that device, data and audio.
Every Soundeditor project aborts burning on that burner.

All Soundeditor projects burnt properly on former drive
Samsung DVD-RW SH-S203/BEBE (internal)
All Soundeditor projects still burn properly on
ASUS SDRW-08D2S-U (USB)
LG HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-E60L (USB)
Workaround 1: write to disc image with Soundeditor, then use another feature of Creator NXT5 to burn the disc image.
Main menu > Data/Copy > burn disc Image

That aborts, too.

Workaround 2: With Soundeditor I exported all the tracks of my project to single WAV files.
I can burn audio CDs from those files with that same burner with Windows Media Center without any problem.
Workaround 3: I even can burn audio CDs from those WAV files with that same burner with Roxio Creator!
If I chose a different feature from the Start page:
Main menu > Music/Audio > burn Audio-CDs
main menu 2.png 77.66KB
That feature is perfectly able to burn my audio CD on that burner.
To me it seems to show that the different features under the roof of Creator use different device access procedures.
I can use the Workarounds 3 or 2, or use the USB burners. But I'd rather use the straight and easy path from the project and use the internal burner.
Can you think of anything I might be able to do to solve the problem?
Thank you for your time!
