The drive is ready to give up, when it cant read dvds or cd's and unable to eject because it cannot read tracks and commands it's time to buy a new one, they are very cheap and easy to fit yourself.

Power off the PC, open the case, disconnect burner, power on pc, restart it, power off, reconnect burner, power on. If it work's then you're done. If no, ask your local computer story for a DVD burner

Sharper image digital photo album

well - I figured out that you have to first wait until it's fully charged and the light changes from red to green. If you are still unsucessful, close the application. Then open the application (I mean the photo viewer that you've already installed from the disc) up again.

Blinking green light on 1 tray

You could have a faulty drive.
To open the tray, you need a paper clip, straighten it and place it in the small hole below the disc tray, push it in and the tray wull pop out slightly, remove paper clip and pull the tray fully out with your fingers.
Then try to close and open the tray with the push button, if it does not work you need to replace this drive with a new one.

My dvd burneer wont reconise dvd and dvd_rw discs

Check the blank disks in another computer if you can in case they are damaged and causing a fatal error when your computer tries to read them, and the reboot.

Are you sure it's SCSI and not SATA as scsi isn't very common these days especially on desktop type PC's? Where are you looking to see if the driver is correct?
If the drive is displaying and can be accessed from your operating system then it should be working fine.
