I have a new DVD/CD-R/RW drive, a 'TSSTcorp CDW/DVD SH-M522C' on an IBM NetVista MT-M 8303-36U Running W2kpro, fully patched. I do not have any CD burning software installed on the system. I've removed AV software temporarily to 'simplify' the system in an attempt to isolate this fault.
The drive can read most media without any problems. This includes closed-session CD-R discs and standard CD-ROMs. Whenever a CD-R is inserted into the drive, the standard windows autoplay dialog (please select an action...) is missing, and double clicking the drive from explorer produces the error message:
D:\ is not accessible - Incorrect Function
The drive itself has been verified as operable on another system.
There used to be CD writing software installed on the system, provided by iomega for use with our old (read: now in a landfill) external CD-RW. I have removed all traces of this software to the best of my ability, as this was suggested on other forums to be causing similar problems. I've googled incessantly and read hundreds of forum posts, to no avail. I'm hoping the gurus here can shed some light on what is probably a very simple problem thanks a lot, in advance, for any assistance you can provide.
