[qanda]This question is published in the hardware section for the Iomega DVD RW. Click here to view full specs.[/qanda]My drive will, when disk is inserted, correctly identify and run all dvd type disks, however when a cdr or cdrw containing mp3, data or programs is inserted, it does nothing. Also, I haven’t tried burning dvds, but it will not burn cdrs or cdrws, again, it doesn’t recognize them. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Please help.
