if anyone can help me here it would be fantastic. my laptop dvd burner will not recognise a blank dvd.it will play/burn cds and play dvds, but will not burn dvds.
when i put a blank dvd in the drive it sees it as a cd! also in ‘my computer’ it says dvdram where it should say DVD-RW drive but when i right hand click for properties, under the general tab it says cd drive. also when i go to preferences to select what i want windows to do with a certain disc the first time it is put in the drive (ie. film-open with windows media player). the option is there for blank cd but not dvd.
tried updating drivers but windows says there are no updates available.
tried uninstalling device and re-booting computer for windows to re-detect the device
this device has always worked properly before( even though i haven’t used it for a while)
i have re-installed windows but then again i have done so about twice before and i never had a problem.
i have also compared with my pc which has a dvd burner and in my computer it says DVD RW
i have also compared with my mate who has a DVD read only drive and in my compter his says DVD RAM
it is obvious windows sees the drive as read only , but why?
please help as this is doing my nut in!! bow:
