I am not sure about Windows 7, but what I use on XP is a progran called Burnaware.
It is a real simple program.

Did you try uninstalling through device manager and then rebooting to allow windows to re-install the drivers?

One of these may help:
1. Uninstall the drive through Device Manager.
Restart computer. The drive will be automatically reinstalled.
3. Download, and run Restore Missing CD Drive patch
Double click on cdgone.zip to unzip it.
Right click on cdgone.reg, click Merge.
Accept registry merge.
4. Go to Device Manager, click a "+" sign next to IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.
You'll see two items:
- ATA Channel0 (or Primary Channel)
- ATA Channel1 (or Secondary Channel)
Right click on each of them, and click Uninstall. Confirm.
Restart Windows. They'll be automatically reinstalled.
Thank's to Broni for the instructions

That would mean that the device is not receiving enough power through the USB port. Some of the multiport devices will come with an external power source that can also be plugged in.
I thought maybe it's the Multi port USB device I was using. I bought it from Wordstart and just received it today. I thought it was a good idea because it took 1 USB port and made it 4. When I removed it and connected my external DVD burning drive directly to the USB port it worked fine
Anyways, thanks for letting us know that you got it sorted out.
