    I have the exact same issue. The first day i got it, i burned 2 cd's just fine, however a couple weeks later i put a CD RW in and it didnt read, i didn't understand why it didn't read even if it had data on it. I didn't think much of it, other than the cd rw was old and could have been corrupted. But then i tryed to burn a CD R for a demo, and it didn't burn. Why is it causing problems now? Is there something wrong with the drivers?

    The message i get from Itunes, and windows media player is that there is no burner, or there is no burner software.

I checked out the specs for that drive.It only reads dvds/cds.
I see that it has no cd/dvd writing capabilities.

All the cd's you used may still be blank

Do you have another drive you can try out?

I'm very late to your question, but the problem is that this drive doesn't burn DVDs (i.e., it was not designed to do that). It's a CD-RW, DVD-ROM (read only).
