I'm assuming it's his new Asus.

sharpie, how long are you waiting after inserting the disc before you try to burn? It can take up to 30-60 seconds for the computer to recognize the empty disc.

1. did you try using a different brand of disc with this drive?
2. have you checked the TDK discs on another drive (PC)?

any previous issues with the burner?
