Default CD RW not detected?

Whenever I try to burn a cd in media player it says that no cd burner is detected? How can I get my drive working correctly again??

Does Windows see the CD-RW? Can you use other software to burn cd's? Or is it just Media Player?

This has happened to me too. I think that after long periods of use, drives simply get worn out. On my old one, i would often have to restart my comp several times just to be able to read a CD, let alone burn one
