Microsoft simply doesn't support all known CD recorders. Your post didn't tell much about that drive or your system.

Things to do (in this sequence):
1. Look in Device Manager for any troubles with the CD-burner. If present, solve them.
2. Download free CDBURNERXP and see if you can burn with that program.
3. Replace the drive for a functioning one.

Did you try another drive?

CD/DVDRW drive failures are all too common. Many spend months trying to avoid replacing an old drive but the lesson is clear to those that do this daily. Swap the drive and re-test.

I agree with Bob.

That, in fact, was point 3 of my list.
