Issues accessing external CD drive

I am trying to burn an audiobook with XFburn, but xfburn says the disc is full.

Thunar doesn't show the cd drive, and all atempts to mount it say that I have a bad filesystem.

I attempted opening the disc with VLC, mounting it and changing the disc, all to no avail.

(I also don't have another drive to cross check with).

/dev shows the following drives.

cdrom3
cdrom6
cdrw3
cdrw6
dvd3
dvd6
dvdrw3
dvdrw6 

However all of these point to sr0.

Any pointers appreciated.

Maybe your disc needs to be formatted, or blanked fully to re use it.

This is a blank, never used CD. Not sure how to format that wink It seems to be a driver issue, as it has no problem reading CDs, but is incapable of writing any data.

Xfburn - Blank Disc; that should set it up for you to burn to it.
