Thank you cdanteek, ogdens & Brendon for all your help & patience!
I sent Roxio Support an email also in addition to posting on the discussion forum board the day I installed Creator 2012 and had all those problems mentioned in my posts.
I did call Dell Tech yesterday aftr your suggestion to update my firmware and the was an update which they installed, tried burning again still same error msgs.
I got soooooooo frustrated late yesterday between the 5-6 discs I had to throw out (burning errors) and time I spent past few days (15+ hrs., no exaggeration!
I uninstalled Roxio Creator 2012 and was going to start fresh this am aftr a good night sleep and new re-install.
However I got a reply back from Roxio Support when I went online this am and had this reply:
