I would of course assume that you do not have access to your own PC. I do not know where you live, but do PC Cafe's still exist there? They do in my country, and I could burn CDs there for cheap if I needed to. Would you have instead access to those? Should be easier than looking for specific disc drives that support Android.i have to make discs as that's what the fool demands.
Honestly I don't even see why it should. And there is more difference between a phone and a PC than that.It should. It's a natural solution. The only difference between my phone and a pc is... It's water resistant, it won't play the same games, it won't do photoshplop, and it can't burn discs. Lame.

Um, hinted? I need to burn discs with my phone. I thought that was rather blatant.OK... you still haven't answered the problem that you are trying to solve... but you've hinted at it.
Based on the (limited) information you've given us THIS is the problem you should solve.
Now it depends on who the fool is, and why he wants discs.
He could be a client, who wants data archiving... in this case the way to solve the problem is by getting the information off the device itself, and to another device that can burn the discs.. This could be done via a LAN, WAN, Cloud or Physical connection (usb stick). Encryption could be something to consider here. As could costs for each option
He could be a professor in your college... in that case you may need to design some new hardware , and write some software. or add some hardware into the network. Possibly a low powered linux device to act as a bridging device (Raspberry Pi?)
He could be a relative, in which case you should look at what he's doing with the discs... Presumably he has something to read them with... is it data, TV programs, videos he's taking? Possibly a Low end Windows tablet would be a better option for him?
I'm making quite a lot of assumptions here.. (you never even said it was a he! ) but I hope you understand. By narrowing down the problem to just writing a disk via a phone, you're limiting the range of solutions and potentially making an easy problem into a very hard one.
which is why someone should get off their butt and make some money off an app. I would think you could create a system where you put the files in a folder, attach the kernel or whatever to the folder itself instead of messing with a kernel for the OS, and burn it like that. Like a seperate OS for the folder to attach to the drive. Even if it were the type with a seperate power supply required it would be better than nothing. These phones are computers and they should have full functionality.Could probably go to an OEM in China, and enquire about them making a phone that can burn CDs for you. Will cost you a packet for the R&D though. But if this is a particular itch you have to scratch, then so be it. Bet your bottom dollar that Google certainly won't be interested in such a project, they want you to use their cloud services.
In theory my Windows 10 tablet probably can burn CDs with a powered portable CD burner via OTG. Although I've never wanted to try it though.
