Linux Mint 17 not mounting blank DVD-R or blank CD-R

When I insert a blank DVD-R or CD-R I get an error message stating "location already mounted" and I cannot burn anything on the disk. Drives will read disks with content already burned onto disks. I've been researching this for some time now and haven't been able to find a solution but there appears to many more out there experiencing the same problem. I am using Mint 17 32 bit. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi & welcome to LQ.
What disk burning software are you using? (K3B? Brasero?...). You need to select the Burn Image... option from the menu (you'll find it under Tools in K3B). Since your disk is blank, you shouldn't be trying to mount it to your file system.
