I have a Dell Dimension 8400 with Windows XP (NT 5.01.2600) SP3
Recently I reformatted my system and installed a new bigger hard-drive
I have two DVD-RW drives
an OPTIARC DVD RW AD-7200A firmware version 1.06
and a PIONEER DVD-RWDVR-111D firmware version1.23
These are being found by windows and can read from discs fine
but Nero 8/ Nero 6 and Infrarecorder do not recognise the drives
I don’t think Windows recognises the drives as writable as there is no cd burning wizard displayed.
I have tried deleting the upper and lower filters and reinstalling the drives in windows and the microsoft fix to do this with no success
I have tried updating my BIOS and updating windows with no success.
I have tried updating the firmware on both the drives but neither tool found the drives and displayed errors to the effect.
Please could someone help me fix this problem
