XP Pro SP3
The drive works excellent in that it loads up anything I put in it, be it a game or presentation cd whathaveyou. However, over the last several days, whenever I try to put a burnable dvd in the drive, the drive changes itself in My Computer from a DVD drive to saying that it is a cd drive with a dvd inserted, so my burning programs don’t recognize that there is a burnable disc inserted, when I take out the disc and put in something like a game, the drive goes back to working flawlessly.
I have tried TDK’s, Memorex and Prism discs, all of which I have used successfully in the drive in the past, no change.
I had Deamon Tools installed, but I’ve had it installed for months with no problems, I uninstalled it just in case it was conflicting with my real drives, didn’t fix the problem.
I’ve tried a firmware update, which didn’t take, at least I can see no difference in the firmware version after running the installer
I’ve tried tips from another troubleshooting site, in which I deleted the registry entries dealing with the drive and allowed windows to recreate them, didn’t fix the problem…at this point I’m stumped.
I had this problem many many months ago, and for the life of me I can’t remember how I fixed it, or if I even fixed it at all and it just went back to normal on its own. Any help you folks can provide would be greatly appreciated.
