I have seen that with some CD/DVD recording software that doesn't work with a lot of drives.
Try another recording app like CDBURNERXP or IMGBURN or other from Ninite.com.
Why Ninite.com? To avoid toolbars and more from other download sites.
I have recently changed my laptop OS to Mint19.1 from Windows 10.
A good move.
When I insert a USB CD/DVD player/burner with a blank CD loaded the into the USB port, following message is displayed:-
"No Burners Are Currently Available......Check that you have Read Write access to the drive"
Could you give me pointers on resolving this please.
