Unknown Disc Drive

Hi all,
I recently downgraded my HP DV9560ea to Windows XP but am having problems finding drivers for the inbuilt DVD burner. It’s odd because it works fine in iTunes but in any other applications (nero etc.) they can’t find it as a disc burner. . .
All i have is in device manager; “Slimtype DVD A DS8A1H”
Help?!?!

Hi and Welcome![quote=Aquai;2101634]

This looks like a software issue. iTunes sometimes breaks things, so you might uninstall that completely for troubleshooting.

This is how the drive reports its name. Nothing wrong here. Are there any error notifications in device manager?
What CD/DVD related software besides Nero and iTunes is installed?
