My DVD drive was working fine and I was burning discs. Now for some reason I get error Disc is not writable insert a writable disc. I tried 5 different blank discs and got the same answer. So I ran Microsoft Fix it and got the message that this drive is not writable. The drive is a dvd burner but Windows XP is only seeing it as a CD drive. How do I fix this?

Go into the device manager, right click and uninstall your DVD drive, then restart.

When it reinstalls, go to my computer-->right click on the drive-->properties-->recording tab-->make sure recording is enabled.
