hi. a few months ago, my dvd rw drive (an IDE 1004) decided one day to call itself a cd drive in ‘my computer’. i ended up thinking it was probably something to do with that drive because it ended up not recognising dvd’s at all (which i read on either this site or one similar that if it had firmware under a certain number,which mine did, the drive stopped recognising dvds after so long)
so ive just bought another dvdrw - this time a liteon 1673, and replaced my cd writer with it (im now going to use my 1004 as a fast cd writer). thing is, when i open my computer, that calls both drives cd drives. i can still play and burn dvd’s with my liteon, but theres little annoyances such as when i insert a dvd it brings up the contents of the disk rather than playing the film. i’m just one of those people that likes evrything working perfect!
so yeah, if anyone can think of a way to try and get ‘my computer’ recognising them as dvd drives and is able to tell me in english and not pc talk, thanks in advance!!
