cd burner reads but won't write
 
Hi. Can someone help me out with following problem. My CDRW reads cd's fine but won't write to a cd. I've got cdxroast up and running fine, but when i go to blank/write a cd i get following error message:
"cdrecord: Warning: controller returns wrong size for cd capabilities page"
Can someone enlighten me on what this means and what i need to do to fix it?
Thanks in advance,
=S=
