Burning content - disc drive not recognising blank disc

Hi All,
I know this is 'against the rules' as I have posted this in another section as well but I got no replies so thought I would try this instead.

I have a toshiba satellite L750 running Windows 7 home premium, when trying to burn anything onto a blank disc I get as far as selecting my items and asking it to burn but it keeps telling me to insert a blank disc (which obviously I have). I have tried several different types of blank disc but it dosnt seem to recognise any of them.

Would be very greatful if someone could help.

Many thanks in advance!

Hmmm tricky are you sure they are blank? your drive also may need a firmware update.

Recognising Type of OS Disc
My computer builder put the system I paid for on the computer. How do I determine whether the discs are retail or OEM? There are two discs, one for X86 and one for X64. There's no indication on the discs or in (or on) the box as to which type they are.
