when you bought the drive, did it come with a install CD to run with it, sometimes uninstalling that program form appwiz.cpl followed by reinstalling it does the trick,

also there maybe something up with the drivers so downloading them too and disinstalling/reinstalling from devmgmt.msc

there is also system restore which is overkill, and then there is the idea of using a different burning program, also I am shamelessly plugging VLC for playing media and DVDs since it knows most codexes
