Imac G5 freezing while burning cd

Everytime I try to use Itunes to burn a cd it checks the playlist, etc then when it starts writing the first track it freezes everytime. I end up having to restart to get the cd to eject cause I can't even cancel the burn, if I don't restart it will just try to burn forever (you can hear the disc spinning).

edit: i've tried more than one kind of blank cd

this is what my "Disc Burning" says under the Hardware tab:


Firmware Revision: Q523

Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipping Drive)
