Nero or Any Burning Software Doesn't Burn CD's

Hi Guys,

I have recently been experiencing issues with using any burning software on my laptop. Both erasing and burning CDs fails. The CD-ROM firmware is current, I’ve tried multiple CD Drives and also different burning software. Can anyone please help? Here is the error log from nero :

  1. Open My Computer.

  2. In the Devices with Removable Storage area, right-click the drive, and then click Properties. If your CD drive is recognized, you will see a Recording tab.

  3. Select the Enable CD recording on this drive check box.
