I have a CD-RW Drive in my computer and it was not reconizing it as a writable drive, which it was before. So I took that one out and replaced it with another one I had out of and older computer. And it still doesn't write. I am able to read cd's in it but not write. Does any one have any idea's on why this is happening. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can check if it's enabled to write.

My Computer, right-click on the drive, select Properties, Recording tab. Check mark should be in Enable Recording, etc.
