My computer sees my dvdrw drive as a cd drive



I have windows xp and a NU DVDRW DDW-082 drive. Windows XP views my drive as a dvdrw but the moment I insert a blank dvd, it says “cd drive” and it won’t let me burn anything.

What is wrong?


Thats normal for it to show as a CD drive when a blank is inserted.
I don’t know why you cant burn anything. Whats your exact problem when trying to burn.


Are you trying to burn your DVD using WinXP’s built-in burning engine or another program ?
