    Is it showing as a cd drive when you have a blank in it?
    That's normal and ok.

    What are you trying to burn? What's happening and/or error message?
    Programs using? Media using?

    I think you may just be right GrandpaBW :)

    Just realized my 'typo' - meant to say 'just need the info from my above post' :)

    @crashiee
    For us to help you we need more info. Lots of reasons why a burn can fail.
    More info is better :)
