DVD writer read but doesn't burn

I have installed a DVD driver of SONY namely Optriarc DVD RW AD-7190A as a slave. Master is SAMSUNGS DVD ROM. Both drives are able to read CD/DVDs. But the writer is not able to burn. A pop up message comes that error ocurred as there is no CD or the drive 
is busy.
It was automaticaly installed in my Window XP. What should I do? May it be due to some of my services not working? Please help.

    It is now working. But It is not able to write a 1x-4x Sony CD-RW CD whereas it writes the Samsung 10x CD-RW CD. I don't know why it happens? Please suggest.

    Now my problem is solved. It was due to speed mismatching of my CD. It was of 1x-4x speed capability of writing. I replaced it with a RW CD of 10x speed. Now working properly. Thanks for trying.

You are going to have to use the ‘rule-out’ method to begin; remove your DVD-ROM and only install your DVD-RW drive as master; see if that solves the problem (a side-note; burners should be set to master and the other drive should be slave).
It will help you if you need the latest FIRMWARE for your drive.

Sony CRX300E CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo - DVD doesn't read

do you have software/program that supports DVD.
Try a different DVD/Movie/Disk or alternative.
Also install a program, such as Nero which will give you physical characteristics of the drive.
Finally go to device manager, and remove or uninstall the device, reboot the computer and setup again. This can sometimes remedy the problem.
ensure that the drive is set as Master/Slave. if on the same Bus/IDE channel as a hard-drive. set as master/slave opposite to what the hard-drive is setup as.
Hope this helps.
