unfortunately there is a lot of extremely junk dvd burners out there. If the dvd burner is not using the pioneer chipset it is junk and will just waste your dvd's. What make and model is your dvd burner?

First things first. Check to make sure all the cables are securely plugged into both your DVD Burner AND your motherboard. Check the manufacterer's website to get the latest drivers. Same for your motherboard. If it still doesn't work, you've probably got a faulty dvd burner or motherboard. Try plugging in a friend's (verified working) dvd burner. If it works, either contact the place you bought it or the manufacterer.

Hope this's been helpful
