Inserted a blank CD to burn music to it and drive failed to burn and maybe even failed to recognize that it was there. In the "My Computer" screen the CD was shown as present but the drive would not burn the CD. It kept asking me to insert a blank into the drive.

The problem is: your laptop cannot read the blank disk. The possible reason is, maybe your laptop doesn't have a burner installed to it, like Nero. You'll need to buy a burner for it, if there's some available! That's no big deal, Desktops also go through that. They just need a burner, and that's all! Hope this helped!
try re-installing your burning software ( nero-Roxio et,c )
Does it play a standard Music/Audio CD.
if not un-install and re-install the drive.
Are the cables to the drive connected correctly ?
Does the drive support CD+ And CD- media ?
Are the cds definately Blank, any small amount of data written to them, after failed burn attempts will not show the disk as being empty.
It sounds like the drive is ready for replacement. It may be that the laser lens is dirty so the drive never detects a disc, or it's gotten too weak from age and use. Replacement drives are very cheap, so the best thing to do is replace the drive. You can get a DVD burner now at Newegg (www.newegg.com) for $25.99.
the blank media must be compatible with the burner drive that you're using... meaning if the drive is for CD-R you can only use CD-R blanks not CD+R. if the drive is CD-/+R then you can use either CD-R or CD+R
well u need to check for the latest software available for your dvd drive try and find the latest software on net according to your company,and check wether the software ur using comaptible with ur windows
p3, Did you try burning the DVD and it failed? You should try upgrading the firmware on DVD drive.
Or, your just interested why Windows is calling your expensive DVD burner a measley CD Drive? Your Burner is an all-in-one.(I think) It plays(and burns) cd's and dvd's. Whatever program you use to burn has not informed Windows of its true intentions yet...Which is to burn a dvd or a cd. It doesn't know what you are burning until something tells it to.
Let me know what happens.
