Sorry for the confusion, I was writing my post from work and my boss was hovering nearby. The programs that I am having problems with are Nero CD/DVD-Speed and KProbe. Since they are two separate programs, I assume the problem is with my burner. I can start up CD-Speed just fine, but when I try to go to the "extra" menu and select "Disc Info", all I get are blanks. Manufacturer, Code, etc are all blank. And when I start up KProbe, go to the "Info" menu, and select "disc", all I see is "no media". I can burn a cd just fine. But it looks like my drive is not reporting the specific disc information like it used to.
