Thanks in advice for any ideas why this is happening, here is my delimma.
I recently did a system restore on my Compaq Presario Desktop,(XP Home) afterwards I decided to remove some avi files that I have on there to DVD.
I pulled out an old MAGICSPIN DVDRW 1008IM that I had in an old computer that always worked great (of course, I lost the software) I plugged it into an EXTERNAL Dynex peripheral USB and plugged it into the presario.
When I “click” MY COMPUTER, I can clearly see " DVD-RW Drive (F) " listed under the Devices with Removable Storage Heading.
Here is what is happening, when I load a DVD+R into the bay and close it, the ICON in MY COMPUTER immediatey changes to “CD Drive (F)” ???
I went to the web and found a firmware update, that didn’t work. I searched the web for any drivers I could find for an external DVDRW, couldn’t find any. Also, this computer when new never came with windows media.
I’m losing my marbles here, this shouldn’t be a problem at all. Anybody have any ideas? Or where I may find media or drivers for this thing?
