Help! DVD burner not recognized in my computer screen!

Hi, I have a philips DVD8421 burner/player. When I goto the my computer screen the drive used to read philips DVD-rw/cd (something like that), anyway now it reads CD-DRIVE. What happend??? I updated the firmware, I have 9H10 and it still doesn’t read correctly. When I right click on the drive there isn’t a burn to this drive option at all.

please help someone, do I need to buy a new drive or what…??

thanks for any help in advance.

That is normal for windows. Also, you need a CD in the drive to bring up the burn otpion.
