    Right-Click on E: drive

    Properties

    Recording Tab

    then check the "Enable CD Recording On This Drive" box.

    I have seen this problem before. It seems to be common. Here are some things to tinker with (ordered by dificulty level),

    The DVD+/-R "standard" is not really a "standard". Not all drives recognize all brands of writable DVD's. Go to your DVD drive manufacturer website and see what brands of writable DVD's he recommends and/or update your firmware.

    If you can't check and recheck your botherboard settings and try swiching out the IDE cables with your friends. Condider upgrading your motherboard BIOS (this may void your waranty) or even reinstalling windows (backup your data first!).

    Refer to this thread with same issue:
