IIRC you have USB 1.0 which may not be compatible with some devices. If you get the drive to work -- you will only be able to burn at ~4x (max).
If your laptop has a cardbus (PCMCIA) then consider getting a USB 2.0 card.
EDIT: Oh and this should be posted in the Genius Bar...

Hello, i'm back,
What happens is simply that the cd-rw is not recognized by Toast 5.2.1 nor 5.2.3,
although they're the custom software.
