[qanda]This thread is about the Samsung DVD Recorder. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I have a Dvd writer TSSTcorp SH-S162A. working on Win XP and SP3

Everything was working fine till i downloaded some stuff and installed the game , now the DVD writer does not write from any software like Roxio, nero etc.

but it does write with the built in function of windows(drag and drop and burn Cds)!!!

so the deal is that the writer Samsung TSSTcorp SH-S162A is ok but some thing is wrong with ???.
I have tried different version s of nero etc but the drive only shows image recorder and the DVD recorder is not recognised as a recording device
Really appreciate any help.
