Default ready to shoot my HP computer

Ok, I'm trying to burn a cd (burning an ISO image for use on another compy) and I'm not having much luck. I have a couple of burning programs, but the problem is my computer won't detect blank CD-roms. If there's already some data on the cd, then it'll read, but that's no good for burning the ISO image. Both of my disc drives read and write, so I don't know why it would do this. Any ideas or solutions?

What I'll do for now is write the ISO file on a disc (that already has some files on it) as a data file and then I'll fire up my oooold compy to read that data, store it somewhere, and then burn the image. Nevertheless, this not detecting blank disc nonsense has got to stop.

tangential rant: this computer is a little over 2 years old and has given me much trouble (for an out of the box computer.) I'm building my next one much like I did my first one back in 9th grade. The warranty hasn't been particularily helpful, so what's the point.
