I have an M2N32-SLI deluxe Mobo and i have tried this with 2 different dvd rw drives so i'm pretty sure it isn't the dvd rw. Basically it says DVD RW in My Computer until i insert a blank dvd then it changes to cd rom any suggestions?

Welcome to Geeks to Go.

Are you having issues burning or using DVDs?

It seems to be just burning. Basically if I open up my computer when there is anything other then a blank dvd in the drive it will read "DVD-RW drive", after a blank is inserted it changes to "CD Drive" and I can't access the drive.

And this occurs with multiple DVD drives? Are these connected through an IDE or SATA cable?

Have you had a look around your BIOS for options that may be restricting the use of your drive?

I checked BIOS and didn't see anything that would be doing it. So....I guess on to the next suggestion. I guess I should list some things I already did, deleted any/all programs for burning or things that may effect the drive, Uninstalled and reinstalled all IDE drivers, deleted upper and lower filters, uninstalled and reinstalled both DVD-RW drives.
