hello I'm new here and just ran into a problem. i have been burning dvds for quite a while and this is the first time something like this is happening.
When I insert a blank dvd + r into my writer it is detected by windows as a blank cd. I recently burned a dvd a few days ago and now it is not letting me do anything. My drive can still read dvd's and cds just fine, even the burnt ones. it just won't let me write on to a blank dvd.
When I insert the dics, in my computer windows says that the drive is a cd rom drive, but when i take the disc out it says its a dvd + rw drive.
I've looked online but have found no answer, hopefully you guys can help me.
My drive is an NEC DVD + RW 1100A. I 've updated all drivers, and even uninstalled the drive and reinstalled.
I'm pretty sure the problem lies with windows xp.
I'm running SP 2
Please if there's anything you can do to help it would be appreciated.
I've done a lot already next step would be to reinstall the OS but i really don't want to do that.
