Cannot burn Discs on 2.6.8 Kernel

I am running NeroLinux on Debian with a 2.6.8 kernel.

When I try to burn a CD (Only tried audio CD at this stage) a window pops up and says;

Please insert the disc to write to…

Disc required for the compilation: CD-R/RW
Disc type in the recorder: CD-R

What gives,

Any suggestions? What info can I provide to help diagnose?
