Need help with minor data burning problem

Hi all

Windows XP home SP2 is not recognizing my LG DVD-RW (18x dual layer, SCSI) as a Recording drive and i cant burn data cd’s/dvd’s from explorer as a result.

All programs like itunes and imgburn burn discs (cd and dvd) without problem, but i cant drag and drop files into the E drive (labelled as DVD-RAM (E : ), and which ‘properties’ reveals is merely a CD-ROM), which is a shame because i need to burn data cds for uni fairly often.

Attempting to drag and drop files to or just explore the drive simply prompts me to insert a disc (not a blank disc, mind) and with that done, i am told ‘the drive is inaccessable, incorrect function.’

I do have daemon tools installed, but even when its not running the problem persists, and i tried the regedit solution microsoft recommends, no help there.

so far i’ve found no-one else with this problem and its really starting to bug me, so any help would be rockin.

i’m not proud of these specs, but if they help…
Intel core 2 duo processor
gigabyte Ga965P-s3 motherboard
1G RAM
256MB NVIDIA 7600GT
40GB IDE HD
160GB SATA2 HD
LG DVD-RW gsa-h12n SCSI (with problems to boot)

cheers then
