Question about Panasonic Toughbook CF-51 Notebook
Toughbook CF-51 laptop DVD drive previously could burn CD's but now it won't recognize the "blank" CD's at all, it WILL read CD's with data on them already so we can say the drive actually works but it may be a software issue.
It could be a software or driver issue. First try updating the drivers for the drive, and try either using different burning software or uninstalling & reloading your current software. I had a cf72 with a DVD/CD combo drive that the DVD reader went out. This could also be the issue, if so you'll need to replace it in order to burn CD's.

Tips for a great answer:
Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287 (or http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic28744.html)
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, itll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.
You could also try a Live Linux like Knoppix Live from here:- http://www.knoppix.net/get.php,
download the Free ISO using a Torrent, burn it to a CD then run that it will load into Ram and then ith all the software in the CD you can examine the hard drive
hope this helps
