Have you tried another brand of blank disk?
As strange or as unlikely as it may seem some optical drives are temperamental and will not work with a certain brand, swap one of your blank disks with a friend who has a different brand if you can, if not purchase a single disk to try, whether it works or not it will prove or disprove if it is the issue.

There is a setting under the drives properties to allow for DVD-RAM recordings, this is enabled by default but will not let you burn a CD or DVD in standard format, go into the drives setting's and disable the DVD-RAM settings and see if that helps.
