If your CD/DVD writer can still read CD and DVD so the problem here can be with your Windows media player and I think you;re using WMP11. You can follow this steps to correct the problem.
First rolled back to WMP 10 you can siomply do that by uninstalling the WMP11 and installing WMP10 then do this after that Click Start > RUN>type in Services.msc > Right click IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service and select Start or restart then after that try to burn aain.

Hello

Most likely the issue is that your CD ROM DRIVE in the computer is not a burner - and it cant burn a CD.

    Hello




    You need a CD ROM / DVD BURNER DRIVE, a normal drive will not do.

Can i burn a music cd on a supermulti DVD burner


Yes you can. It will burn CD or DVD.
Get some blank CDs. Insert one into the burner.
You should see a window asking what you want to do.
Select what best matches your task at hand. It should call up yer burning software. Tell it what you want on it and click on the Burn button.
