If someone could help here, it would be greatly apreciated.
My external DVD Drive was working fine and now all the sudden it will not read any Blank DVDR discs. If I insert something that I have already written onto another DVD disc, it reads that fine. But the second I put in a Blank DVDR, the DVD Drive switches to a CDROM Drive. I know this may sound strange, but that’s really what happens. I can open up “My PC”, put a blank DVDR disc in the DVDRW drive and in seconds i watch it go from a DVDRW drive to a CDROM drive.
I’ve been using SONY DVDR Discs right along and haven’t changed that, so it can’t be different media.
I have one CDROM Drive and a CDRW Drive as well. But nothing seems affected there.
I have one External HDD. 120 gb Maxtor
No other drives installed on this pc.
I have always used Nero to burn my DVD’s, both Movies and back up data files.
Any ideas what might be wrong? And what I can do to fix the problem.
