Lite-on sohw-1613s wont detect blank dvd disks (Lite-On SOHW-1613S)

[qanda]This thread is about the Lite-On SOHW-1613S. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]My lite-on sohw-1613s will read cd’s cdr’s and store bought dvd’s but, will not detect a blank dvdr disk. When looking in ‘my computer’ the drive clearly is shown as a ‘dvd rw drive’ but as soon as i put a blank dvdr disk in, the title changes to ‘cd-drive’ Any help you can give me on this will be greatly appreciated. Please note I have already updated the firmware from the lite on website and also checked to make sure i have the latest drivers.

That is normal for windows xp.
