I am new to this forum, but I have an old problem, which is exaclty the one in the title of this topic.
Every DVD-RW/+RW that I burn with my burner is then seen as DVD-ROM and cannot be deleted. Any DVD-RW/+RW burned somewhere else gives the same problem.
I have an “optiarc” dvd burner (should be NEC), whit SATA II interface, with Windows XP SP2. The same drive, used under Window Vista (I have two partitions and two OS on the same machine) works perfectly and DVD recongized as DVD-ROM under Windows XP are correctly shown as DVD-RW/+RW under Vista.
I have Alcohol installed under XP. I tried all possible settings and even uninstalling it without success. No burning program is able to recognize correctly the inserted media once it has been burned. I have to erase the written disks from Vista (which means restarting system twice because I’m not actually using it). I guess it might be a problem of XP drivers for Sata II burners. I tried to uninstall drivers but nothing changed (actually XP recognizes the same driver).
As I said it is an old problem, but now it is becoming quite unbearable since I have discovered that my (new) laptop is experiencing the same problem. The same disks run on another laptop instead work fine! Both run Windows XP SP2 and both DO NOT have Alcohol installed and have Sonic software.
I tried also other tools like DVDinfotool or something like that, but without success. It is not a problem of media book type, is the burnere that reads it wrong.
