Generally CD burners can't be used as a regular CD drive.

why do you say that? They can be. Thats why on the box it tells you read: speedX write: speedX Re-write(if it is a cd-rw drive) speedX. X being the speed of the drive.

My CD-RW burner doesn't read unless there isn't a CD in the other CD drive.

Thats pretty messed up, i've never heard of a drive that ran like that. I've used a cd-r for a primary, and now i'm using a dvd-r as one. Never had a problem.

Actually you have a better chance of reading burned CDs with a writer ROM.
