Try using a different company's cd's. I had that problem on a computer until I realized that for some reason it would not burn using sony cd's.

I would suggest a scan with our spyware guide.

Just to make sure that the system is clean. If it comes back with a clean bill of health from our spyware expert Osiris, then we can explore further options if this behavior still continues.

also some some cd's and dvd's wont work on that drive, it detects that they are there because the spinning cd is beside the mouse when i put the cd or dvd in but it does not show up in my computer

Do you have another burner to try or can you try this burner in another computer to confirm it is the problem.
