Dvd writer

Hi all, i’m Alan, I have recently bought 2 different types of external dvd writers. Both have same problem, they both write to cd’s but when i put a dvd in the drive the icon in my computer changes from dvd ram drive to cd rom drive and will not burn. I have been told at the shop that its a xp problem and to check the microsoft site on how to change it. But EL Thicko here can’t find it, can anyone help please? :confused:
