I installed the OEM version of the Sony DWQ-120AB2 on a new system with Windows MCE. Windows shows the drive in the device manager and the drive will function in DVD-Shrink and Nero. For some reason the drive will not function in Easy CD/DVD Creator or in Windows Explorer or Media Center.
In Media Center it tells me that there is no drive attached to the system. I updated the firmware tonight and now when I try to burn using the built in features in “My Computer”, I get an error stating that Windows encountered a problem while copying the files. In Easy CD Creator, the drive doesn’t even exist.
Any idea why the burner works in some programs but not in Windows built in software? I have built several systems and this has been the first time I have been unable to plug and play with a DVD-RW. The drive can read discs in Windows, it just can’t write them.
