This could be sign that the unit is about to fail.

It could also be a sign of many other things.

At least a couple of possibilities beyond those mentioned above:

A drive may seem to be hung if the media is incompatible--it may take a long
time for the OS to tell you that.

Depending upon the CD-Burning software you are using, some earlier versions
(e.g., 5.0, 5.5, of Nero included InCD) required rt-clicking on the drive,
say in Explorer, to find the 'eject' command for CD-RWs formatted for UDF
packet-writing
