    You DON'T have alcohol on !!! I recall seeing a problem like this that said alcohol uses a "ghost" drive its not that long back either.

    If your using windows xp, try going to

    control panel>Administrative Tools>Services and disable IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service then restart your PC.

    If that still doesnt work, right click on your burner icon and then see if it sais anything about "files waiting to be written to cd" or something like that and if it does, delete the files to be writen.
