DVD writer wont write CDs

I am trying to write a disc image with my NEC DVDRW drive and it is not working. When I press burn in Nero, it ejects the disc saying that I need to insert a CD-R, but no matter how many blank CD-Rs I put in, it still rejects it. I have had a similar problem with writing CDs in iTunes.

I have used this drive on previous installs of windows and never had such a problem before.

Thanks

Could be that the cd laser has a fault, had the same fault on my dvd writer, sent it back and awaiting replacement.

Sorry, I forgot to mention, the drive writes DVDs perfectly fine. It just wont write CDs.

Have you checked that you are selecting a CD and not DVD burning session in Nero (from SmartStart)?
