Did what DrTeeth recommended, but no fix.
Stepped through the trouble shooter, its amazing, because there are 4 radio button choices, one of them being "Can see CD material but not DVD", yet there is no choice to cater for the other way around. It amazes me how often a logical case scenario is not allocated.
From what Icey is saying, if I move these drives over to my Linux box they should be okay? Or make my main box a Linux box (which is fine as long as I can get some of my Win apps to run under WINE.
Are there DVD drives that don't have this problem under Win?
Thanks for the help
