Hello Mawaltaf, thanks for responding back.
I'm attaching some screenshots of my bios set up and also of my device manager to further assist you in the resolution of this issue. What I hope it will show are any errors, how the drive is connected to your motherboard. If you are capable provide us with images to review. I will bestanding by.

Ok, as I understand your issue you are attempting to read/write data to a CD/DVD
After reviewing you optical drive within your device manager I'm going to research your drive.
When you attempt to write onto a blank media disk are you using a 3rd party writer such as Nero? Or are you attempting to write to the media through Windows 7?

Ok, so you are using Nero, when you load a music disk/data does Windows 7 read the disk?

Ok, we are starting to narrow down the issue. Are you able to copy/burn data to your optical drive/media using the feature in Windows 7?
