try ImgBurn (www.imgburn.com , set it to MODE > BUILD then in OPTIONS change 'file system' to 'ISO9660 + Joliet + UDF' if your burning basic DATA discs) to burn your blank cd's.
if your trying to burn AUDIO CD's i recommend the FREE application called "Burrrn" (google it)
if those dont work... you probably got some sorta conflict on your PC or your burner could be dead.
my drive is similar to yours (Lite-On 1673S)
p.s. the built in windows burning application is a joke... never use them.
