Unhappy CD/RW wont write

I have just installed a Samsung CD/RW - SW-252B.

But it will read but wont write.

I have installed the drivers (I think).

What might I be doing wrong?

Any ideas gretly appreciated.

Well there are a couple of things to look at,,

Is this a new unit ,, what software are you using to burn with,, what is the media that you are using,,

what are your system specs,,

cheers,

What do I need to do to do this?

It was a second hand drive and downloaded the drives off the internet.

I was using Microsoft media player to burn a music CD, but I couldn't copy an image to the file like I can with my Zip drive either.

second hand drive? i would bet it is partially broken which is why you cannot burn anything. there is nothing to set for you to burn, all you need is burning software.
