[qanda]This thread is about the Optiarc AD-7200A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Whenever I insert blank media (I’ve tried DVD+R, DVD-R and CD+R), the drive’s designation changes from “DVD-RAM Drive” to “CD Drive” and the drive is no longer recognized by any burning software and isn’t listed among the installed drives on my system. The drive is only recognized correctly as a burner when I insert discs with data written to them, at which point it reappears in my various burning programs. What’s more unusual is that I was able to burn a CD+R using Window’s IMAPI while no other programs would recognize the drive. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling it several times, and Windows always calls it a CD-ROM drive and installs CD-ROM Drive drivers.
Any ideas? I’m at a loss here.
