Quoting Richard Crawford (rscrawford@mossroot.com):

Any recommendations for software?  I'm not all that keen on paying money
for such software if I can avoid it.

I recommend burning a Knoppix CDR (or DVD), and then booting it.  It
comes with cdrecord, k3b, etc., and reliably auto-recognises hardware
better than anything else on x86, bar none.

(Generally speaking, if the answer is a piece of Win32 software, you're
asking the wrong question.  ;->  )

His problem is burning the Knoppix CD in the first place ;)

Richard: If you have CD writer, I'm sure it came with CD burning software. I haven't seen a CD writer not come with something, usually Roxio or Nero. If it came with a prebuilt computer, then somewhere in your box of documentation and installation CDs, there should be burning software. It may be several versions old, but usually you can upgrade for free.
