Try a new CD-RW...if you really want to know if it works.
Trying a disk which did not completely record...is a waste of time, IMO, if you want to know if the burner is functioning properly. The disk itself can be bad.
I would also burn a CD-R.

The proper setting for that service is manual, not automatic. I believe this service only runs when burning and the burn software triggers it (but I'm not sure that's how it works).
If my burner doesn't function properly, I usually assume it's the software at fault as my first guess. You might try uninstalling it and reinstalling.
As for drivers...Windows supplies the drivers (typically) for all optical drives.
What you linked is firmware, which is not a driver. It's analogous to the BIOS on a motherboard and I've never had to do a firmware update. IMO, such should be treated the same way as BIOS updates...if it ain't broke, don't break it by fooling with it.
