Dell desk top / 8400

I have a Dell Desktop 8400 with two CD drives. When I try to write to CD on the CD-RW drive, I keep getting a message that the media is unusable and might be scratched or dirty. The Memorex CD-RW is brand new and is listed as up to 4X at 700 MB for 80 min. No matter how many new disks I use, the message keeps coming up. The drive was working intermittently a week ago but has now gone south. Is this a problem with the Philips drive or do I need to upgrade the driver?

try upgrading the driver first. then if that does not work see if a friend has a cd that you can put in the drive to clean the lense. or you could buy one but if that does not work you waisted your money. so ask a friend.
