    ok best way for me to help you is to ask what does it read on the actual disc you are inserting when it asks this?

My combo DVD drive will burn a CD, but when I put in a blank DVD it just opens the drawer and says to insert a disc. Windows XP.

If it is in fact a Teac CD-Rewritable W58E CD-RW Burner, this will only burn CDs and not DVDs. If you put in a blank DVD you will get this error. You will need a burner that has DVD burning support.

Won't record record to CD-RW

First make sure your cdrw disc is blank. If it is blank try another good known cdrw brand disc and burn it in 12x speed for a good burn.

If it still fail check the software side of your cd rewriter first and lastly the cd rewriter unit.
