Problem with my Iomega CD-RW External USB Burner

Hi there! Could you please help me. I have Iomega CD-RW 52x24x52 External connected to USB which I have had for 3 years with very little trouble up to now. I went away for few days so I disconnect the burner from my computer as we get Blackouts and storms here. When I load a blank CD to burn Data or Photos my Iomega goes through its normal burn process and at the end tells me that it is completed but when I load the CD onto the hard drive it does not come up on the screen. So I load that cd back into the Iomega burner to check the Data and it is telling my it is BLANK CD. OR After I have tried to burn Data onto a blank CD an Error message comes up Sense key: medium error (0x83) Additional sense 0x73 0x02 and eject the disc. I have tried to solve the problem by: Load New pack of CD. Load different Data or Photos on Burner. Turn off Computer and power for few hours. I have tried for 3 days. If you could help me I would be greatfull. King Regards Ruth

    Installed the CD-RW & HotBurn (it said successfully), & it shows up; BUT when I try to use it I get a popup saying "not accessable".

    Any Ideas?
