Philips DVD Writer - Can't write on new PC

I have just installed a Philips DVDR1628K internal drive on my new Dell machine, when I click on My Computer it shows as a DVD-RW, however when I insert a blank DVD it changes to CD-ROM and I can’t use the ‘send to’ option. The drive worked perfectly well in my last Gateway machine, but not in this one, anybody get any idea’s ??

But it will play DVD’s without any problems.

I have upgraded the firmware to the latest available on the Philips website.

Both PC’s have Windows XP installed.

I have also just tried to copy a DVD with Shink 3.2 and got the following…

Hmmm…

[li]First thing I see is that it’s now a 1648P, not a 1628K. You mention a f/w change…[/li][li] Next thing: you need to enable DMA. It’s off at the moment.[/li][li] Then: the firmware doesn’t appear to recognise the discs in use. What brand/MID are you using?[/li][li] Also: you are using a lot of memory (72%) for something else.[/li][/ul]Basically I suggest your drive is guessing to burn the disc at 8x, and probably cannot keep up with the data transfer in PIO mode.

And not to forget, corssposting is not allowed…
