Hi and Welcome![QUOTE=noviceeric;2476949]as an Xp usser my 'CDVDW SH-S223F SCSI drive worked well. This enabled me to copy DVD-RAM dvd’s onto DVD-R/W etc. since installing Windows 7 I am unable to do this, and even if I re-install Xp; am still unable to ‘see’ DVD-RAM dvd’s.[/QUOTE]could you please give some information about the Sata controller you have your drive connected to?
I guess, this is an issue related to that controller, its configuration and drivers.
