What type of disk are you using, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD+R or whatever?
What happens when you try to burn - do you get any error messages?
What method are you using, as there are various ways?

Reading and burning are quite different processes and there can be several reasons. Answers to the above will help us focus us into likely causes.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Has the drive ever played - and recorded/written disks?

Is the drive a player (only can read/play disks) - or is it a burner as well?

The two types of drive may look the same, but of course they aren't.

What is the "exact" make and model of your drive?

Do you have 'Burning' software installed? With just the basic drivers you can read the disks but to burn data on them you need a burning program (like Nero).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
