When I try and burn photos onto a disk i get this error "make sure the latest firmware for your CD or DVD burner installed" at the end.

Under system information my CD Rom is "atapi ihas324 b ATA Device"

How can i update my drivers? is this even the issue?

It would be useful for additional information to be provided regarding what OS, what software, if you have tried alternative software, or media ? What version is your software etc etc etc.

Sorry good point, Win 7 64Bit

I've tried using the Windows burn to disk feature and also VSO ConvertXtoDVD software - neither work.

I'm guessing the media you are trying to use is possible incompatible with your DVD burner. Have you done as it suggests and looked at the DVD manufactuer website to see if they have new firmware?

Note that firmware is NOT the same as a driver, you don't need to install a driver in Windows.

Does the writer have a brand name on the front ? Are you able to remove the writer and look at the manufacture sticker on it ?

LITEON is the brand. But you will still need to find the model number from the sticker on the top of the cd drive

I would have thought that there should be somewhere in the CD/DVD writer software where it identifies the model. For example in InfraRecorder which I'm using on my work pc running Windows XP, you can use:

Options -> Devices -> double click on the device listed to get the details:

hp CDDVDW TS-L633R


So in my case, it's a HP CDDVDW TS-L633R 0300 and I can also see what type of media should be supported.
Perhaps sbiddle is on the right track here - what sort of media are you trying to write to?

Usually you can - try installing "Speccy" from http://www.piriform.com/ - that should give you more info.

Meh for $30 you can replace it with one that works right away and sell yours on trademe for $15. I wouldn't personally bother, it could be faulty as well.

You already have the product number iHAS 324 B It appears to be a current model. If the firmware needs updating the updater tool at the bottom of this page can be used
