    Start->Run-> services.msc
    Maximize the Services Window that eventually opens
    Scroll down to IMAPI CD-Burning.. and double click on it
    Select startup is Automatic, and Start it
    Apply Ok
    Close Services Window

    Then check the Drive again
    You should also try restarting your computer, then test again too

    sachinda, perchance, are you running vista?

    cause if it is, then it's probably a filtering issue - which is easily resolved
