Default cd writer detects normal cd's but not blank cd-r

After I flashed my bios I have found that my cd writer(MSI CD-RW S-8348) does work but will detect normal cd's and run them for example the windows xp cd but will not detect blank cd-r or cd-rw disks. I have been unable to copy information to cd for some time. My motherboard is an MSI KT4V, the BOIS version is v1.3.
Can anyone offer a solution to this problem. I would think the problem will be a bios setting but im not sure and have tried everything I can think of.

Any CD-ROM ever built is able to read CD-R's.

What kind of CDR's are you using, a bad batch of crappy CD-R's could explain this.

How common is it getting a bad batch?

Call msi. Try to use a different brand of media first
