External cd/dvd writer.

  TABBYCAT 17:56 20 Dec 2004

I have a Philips Jackrabbit cd/dvd writer conected via usb. It has worked fine in the past, now when I try to write to any disc (cd or dvd)I get an error message saying it is not possible to write to this cd-rom.
Why is the computer seeing it as a cd-rom, which of course I wouldn't expect to be able to write to?
Any suggestions?

I consigned this one to the skip on the drive!
