ok, you CD burner seems to be playing CDs but apparently it does not 
recognize balnk media for burning.
Is this correct?

If so, is this REALLY a CD BURNER (no joke, I had a customer complain 
that he could not burn ;-)?

If yes, the only solution I can think of is to try with a different type 
of blank CD R/RWs.

Lastly, if all of this fails, I would  suggest to try with CDburner XP ( 
http://cdburnerxp.se/). It probably will not solve the problem, but it's 
free and worth a try.
Ultimately, a new internal burner (they tend to be cheaper that external 
models) will probably, what you will need.

Kind regards
