rob1102,

I would suggest simulate writing, test burn and see what happens...also see if it can read normal CD's fine.  Can you see the file folders?  or play Music CD's....etc.
It is possible that it went bad.  It is an older drive.

Are you using Easy CD Creator to burn your discs? I've found that the Direct CD application included with it will sometime occupy my burner and report it as busy. I've uninstalled the Direct CD feature all together.

Hope this helps!

Before attempting to re-installing remove any ghost images (if old one exists and is corrupt it will just tell you that the driver already exists and not overwrite it).
Boot in safe mode. Goto your device manager, find the device driver image of your cdrw and remove it.
Boot normal now.
Re-install driver.
JUST A NOTE: Sony burners will not record sony software (they dont like people copying there own stuff, they put deliberate blank spaces in there code and burn in there software to prevent as such with blank spaces). You need a burner with RAW DATA writing capability and burn TRACK AT ONCE capability.
