I don't think so. It should be plug and play.

Are there any error messages when inserting the disc?

Check the SATA or IDE cable is connected properly and that BIOS sees the drive in the boot options - hard drive, cd, usb etc.

Do you have burning software like Brasero installed?

My computer works the same way as yours. Maybe I do know what I should, but what I do is put the blank cd in the drive and reboot. It then will recognize it.

Are your blank CDs the same brand? What if you burn something on that CD from another computer and try it to your machine after?
