Problem writing FreeBSD 6 ISO files using Nero 5.5

Dear friends:

Now that my BIOS problem has been resolved (I'm going out momentarily to 
buy a new keyboard), my last major hurdle before I can install FreeBSD 
is burning the two FreeBSD ISO images on my CD-RW CD using my CDWriter 
and Nero 5.5. When I insert my brand new CD-RW (700 MB) into my CD-RW 
drive and click on "Burn Image" in Nero, then go to my FreeBSD folder, 
then select the first FreeBSD ISO disk and then hit Write, the writing 
starts with "Checking disks" in the status bar. But soon it stops and 
the CD is expelled from the CD drive with the error message: "Medium 
empty. Please put new CD (or whatever) into drive." This happens every 
time even though each time I put a brand new Memorex CD.

Your help would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
