Try this,go to control panel > system> hardware>device manager>dvd /cd rom drives and delete the drive ,restart and it should re find your dvd drive and re install it .Have you got the cd that came with the drive,if you have you can try reinstalling the drivers

You say it is detected? as a blank cd. What burning software are you using? Is this a new addition to your computer? What is your operating system?
