Do you have any errors in your device manager ?
Have you tried updating or changing drivers ?
Does it read dvd's normally ?

I know this is the most obvious thing, but are you sure it is a blank disk?

hmmm :/. i don't suppose you run linux? because if you could test it in linux you would have a pretty definitive answer. a) similar sort of result=drive at fault b)burning works=windows/software fault
