Do you have more than 1 drive in your machine?

If not, the drive you do have in there is a basic DVD-ROM drive. It can read discs but it can't write to them.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Yes, look in device manager and see if they're both listed.

If they aren't, check / replace the cables going to the missing drive - i.e. look inside the case.

So now check and see if the bios finds it - then check the connections to the drive.
