Open up your console window, and as root, issue the following command:

cdrecord -scanbus

Ensure that your CDRW is in the list (probably listed as device 0,0,0). If it's there, grab yourself an iso image to test with (or make one in k3b). And using the command line, try to burn it:

cdrecord -v dev=0,0,0 speed=16 test.iso

Change the speed to whatever your max speed is, and your dev= to whatever is listed in the -scanbus.

Before the actually burning stage, cdrecord will show a bunch of info about the burner and cd to give you an idea on what's supported.
