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.

but windows doesnt recognize one of them.

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.
