Is there a burner to allow me to burn CD's

Question

I bought a used Compact Armada Laptop M700. I installed my own Jukebox Plus and Musicmatch so I could take it to my Summer cabin and continue burning MP3s to CDs like on my regular Desktop.

However this Laptop refuses to burn, saying it can not find a burn driver. The system info states that it has a Compaq CD - 224E 9.0B recording drive in it.

I also can not burn off my Nero Burner Software either. Is there any burner that I can install in this Laptop to allow me to do Burning? I wrote Compaq and they won't talk to me because the warranty ran out . Any ideas , or is this too old a Laptop. Thanks Jerry Surra

I did a checked with compaq and they state the drive you have is only a CD-ROM drive and not a burner so you cannot burn cd on it.
