This sounds like your dvd drive stopped working. try with different cds or dvds. If not there is a complicated way but if you are not familiar with computers don't do that. A service technician can easily solve it for you.
Is your DVD drive a Combo DVD ROM and CD Read/writer? If so it cannot burn DVD only reads DVDs and read and burn CDs.
If the program cannot find a DVD burner then either the burning software cannot support that model DVD burner ot the DVD burner is faulty.
To test the DVD burner, remove it and install it into another computer to test the burner to see if is faulty.

Is this drive new, or new to you and has it worked before on your system with DVD's. Has your System been reloaded lately or been recovered from a System Crash? What Operating system is on your computer? Are the DVD's Blank, Movies or Software??? The drive is in your computer? What Brand? any Idea? How long since you put a cleaning disc through the Drive?
