Yep a bad drive could be the culprit, perhaps the lens is damaged, hence only reading.. Did the repair shop give you any info about what was done?
Which version of windows are you running?
If its professional you can check the eventlog for any events related to atapi after trying to burn a cd/dvd. Its located in administrative tools in the control panel, look at the system log.
Perhaps post the drive model so we can check if theres any related issues to that particular model?
