Care to post your script? We may be able to identify your problem from
that. What you don't really tell us is how it works - are you using
Shell.Application to invoke verbs, or what?
If you want to pursue your current technique, I suggest posting the script
(or if it's too long, at least the segment where it is supposed to write the
CD) as well as telling us your specific version of Vista - most importantly,
whether it's 32 or 64 bit.
As an alternative, you might also want to pursue using alternate
command-line tools that IMO generally work better. Usually you would have a
two-phase operation similar to what your script currently does; the first
step is actually creating an ISO image using mkisofs, and the second is
burning the image using a tool like cdrdao, cdburn, or cdrecord. I prefer
this because it's very controllable, doesn't run through visible desktop
elements that might cause problems, and makes few demands on the computer;
the tools are free and can be found through a Google or Live search.
Other alternatives include formatting the disc with UDF to simplify direct
file copying, and using an IMAPI script; see this page for details: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scr.../imapi2-2.mspx
Even if you want to change your method, I'm curious about the issue you
encountered with the original script.
