Does it happen with pre-recorded CDs, like audio CDs or DVDs as well? If not, you might want to try a different brand for your recordables. If it happens with audio CDs as well, review the Windows event viewer entries. If it says something about i/o errors, check the cableing of the drive. Or replace it.
