  • Cakewalk Pyro 5

If Pyro starts burning normally then stops during the Disc Preparation process without a warning, there are a few things you can try:

1. Try waiting to put the blank CD in the drive until Pyro prompts you to do so.

2. To ensure that other programs are not interfering with the operation of Pyro, do the following:

  1. Click the Start button and select Run. Type msconfig in the Run box.

  2. Click OK.

  3. On the General Tab, choose Selective Startup.

  4. Un-check "Load Startup Items".

  5. Click OK and restart the computer

3. Download and install the latest update for Pyro’s CDRW drivers:
