The first idea, is that your power supply is too small, (not enough wattage) for your needs.

You are able to burn one disk because you have just enough power for "normal" operation. The extra current draw of burning a disk heats up your power supply, and causes the power supply to reduce the amount of available power.

Without knowing your system configuration, I can't make a specific recommendation.

I no longer use anything less than a 300 Watt supply, and typically use 450 and 500 Watt supplies.

One possible short term fix would be to add more case cooling. 2 or 3 fans blowing air into the case may allow the power supply to run cool enough.
