CD Writers, DVD Writers suddenly all seen as CD-ROMs by Windows XP
The drive icons in Explorer used to identify the type of drive "DVD-RW
drive" "DVD Drive" etc, now they all just say "CD Drive".
Windows XP built in CD Writing is not available.
I've tried deleting various things in Device Manager and re-detecting
but it doesn't seem to make any difference.
Anyone know how to fix it.
The DVD-RW drive now shows as DVD-RW most of the time but explorer will not show the Label of the disk in the drive.
AutoRun will not work on any of the drives.
Doing anything to do with the drives in Device Manager seems slower than usual.
Changing the drive letter doesn't not work properly until after a re-boot.
Until re-boot the drive shows up with the old drive letter but the icon is a hard drive icon with a big red exclamation mark.
