Dvd-station becomes Cd-rom station

#1

Hello,

I have a Optiarc DVD RW AD-5170A SCSI CDROM Device.
It works great, but when i put an empty DVD+RW the station changes into a CD-ROM Station and I can not burn anything on the DVD.

I have no idea how to solve this problem.

Can somebody help me with this?

Thanks

What kinda media are you using? Did you make sure you burner is able to read +R media? Do you have other burning programs installed??

I use nero 7. I don’t have other burning programs on my computer.

When I look on the net for the specifications of the type of dvd-station I have, it seems that I must be able to write to DVD+RW.

Hallo there,
i have too optiarc dvd rw ad-5170a and a problem similar to this one.
Using different media, pls. if you gonna tell me “You this brand instead of this…” - Don’t!

Few days ago started receiving errors
"Power Calibration error" , today cleaned the optic and now all seems to be fine but when the DVD is burned and insert it again in my DVD-Rom it looks like blank CD-R (?!)

Tried this with two different applications and with windows xp built in function - but no chance.

Any ideas ?
Thanks in advance!

With XP, My Computer list my burner as ‘DVD-RAM Drive’. When a blank DVD is inserted it changes to ‘CD Drive’. That’s normal and has nothing to do with any problems you may have.
