I’ve got a Ricoh MP5308D DVD+RW and a Pioneer DVR-104 DVD-RW on my machine, running XP Home. These worked fine on SP1, but now that I’ve ‘upgraded’ to SP2 I find that Windows treats these drives as read-only. When I click on their Properties there is no Recording tab. I’ve been into the Registry to set their drive-type flags to 2 but this has made no difference.
Some apps, like Nero, still work fine, presumably because they bypass the Windows software layer. But Sony’s SonicStage is now treating these drives as read-only, which is a real pain. Any suggestions, please?
