BenQ dw1655 Lightscribe dvd drive

I haven’t tried to burn anything for at least 6 months. When I tried today the drive registered all media as a cd. I tried HP Lightscribe DVD+R 16x, Magnavox DVD+R 16x, and HP CD-R 52x. None read as a DVD. I have made many burns with both DVD discs in the past.

What version firmware are you using?

Try uninstalling the drive in device manager, then reboot and let Windows re-detect it.

I currently have BCGB. I have uninstalled the drive then manually detected it through device manager. Would shutting down and letting it detect that way make a difference? If so I will give it a try this evening after work.

Thank you for the reply!

What app are you using to burn with?

I am running XP Media Center 2002 SP3 and using Nero Vision 4 to edit and burn.

It might, which is why I suggested you specifically do that. Uninstall, and then reboot. Please.
