I have a TEAC DV-W58G-A DVD writer with the latest firmware update. Here are the details about it: http://www.teac.co.jp/dspd/product/optical/dv-w58ga.html. It can write to DVD-R at 8x speed.
I also bought some DVD-R disks. Here are the details about the disks:
Unique Disc Identifier : [DVD-R:ONIDTECH]
Disc Type : [DVD-R]
Manufacturer ID : [ONIDTECH]
Manufacturer Name : [UL TRAN Technology & Service Corp.]
Disc Application Code : [Unrestricted Use : Consumer Purpose]
Recording Speeds : [1x , 2x , 4x] (8x Cannot Be Detected)
Blank Disc Capacity : [2,298,496 Sectors = 4,489.3MB = 4.38GB (4.71GB)]
[DVD Identifier - http://DVD.Identifier.CDfreaks.com]
Before I insert the disk, Windows XP SP2 shows the drive correctly as a DVD writer. However, as soon as I insert the disk, Windows XP suddenly decides that it is a “CD Drive”. I cannot coax it into thinking that the drive is a DVD writer. Nero Express also thinks that it is a CD drive. Only DVD Identifier realizes that the disk is a DVD-R. How can I make Windows XP and Nero realize that the disk is a DVD-R and not a CD?
Thanks in advance!
