Recording/burning to disc

I searched your system and it shows a CD/DVD/RW.
So you can burn CD, DVD+R RW and DVD-R RW
So the most common DVD media would be the DVD+ media.
CD media would be all CD media. (info) RW: Re-Writable

What should the CD's recording speed be when buying a blank CD-R/CD-RW for an Acer Aspire 5750-6677?

Rewritable CD-RW / DVD-RW media typically have lower recording speed (4X - 12X is common) compare to CR-R / DVD-R (20X - 50X is common).
The quality of the CD/DVD media is the most important factor: buying a well known brand blank media is always advisable.
The higher the recording speed for a specific brand the higher the price: that said, a CD/DVD with a high recording speed rating can always be used at a lower (and usually more reliable) speed.
If you are not burning CD/DVD everyday, then a cheaper 'slower' media, especially at an attractive price point, is OK.
ps. Be aware that writable CD/DVD media are not always readable/compatible in other devices (e.g. external DVD or CD players) ... even well known brand media can fail compared to lesser brands.

Sony CD / DVD DRU-510A. Reads CD's and DVD's, burns CD's, but will not recognize blank DVD's. Sony support page states: 4X DVD-RW Media Compatibility Notice Please Note: 4X DVD-RW media is not...

Well a quick check here says it should manage 4 x DVD write speeds:-

The only thing I can think of is that lens may have some dust on it, try a CD lens cleaning disk or a blast of air from an aerosol spray can.

After this, I'm afraid its down a replacement.

I have a Sony DVD DRU-820A burner. When I insert a dvd--either a blank one to burn or a DVD disc to view--the name of the drive switches from DVD-RAM Drive (D:) to CD Drive (D:). The burner no longer burns...

The device is _partially_ broken -- the part that reads/writes DVD media is "dead".

Spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" unit.

I want to burn dvd using cheetah dvd burner,when i press burn a note says''insert a media writable

Might be several reasons
Take a look on front panel if it says DVD-RW use only DVD-R (RW) blanks, +RW only +R(RW), +/- or RAM both. Check the record speed your blanks might have higher speed than allowed
Also blank might be upside down
Hope that helps
Good Luck

Drive might be dead. Try another drive to eliminate the drive as being the problem. Also try DeepBurn writer software.
