i have a ThinkPad W520 (4276-37U). In the product spec it says the following regarding the DVD drive "CDRW/DVDRW", which I assume means read / write. I'm trying to burn and ISO image to a DVD. Windows reports that the drive is not capable of writing and infact the device driver says ROM in the description
"Optiarc DVD ROM DDU7710H SCSI CdRom Device"
Do I have the wrong driver? If so, please point me to the correct RW driver because I have not been able to find it on your site. If not, how do I get the drive I purchased?

Try taking the DVD drive out and check that it is actually a DVDRW drive. Perhaps the machine shipped with a DVDROM drive which can only read DVDs.
DVD-R and DVD+R are certainly writable - just not RE-writable (which is what DVD-RW and DVD+RW are).
