I have a custom-made PC Windows XP Pro SP two speed 2500 hdd #1, 80 gig
This machine is clean:
The problem I am having is brand new I have never seen it before. And the tech people I know are
baffled. Maybe someone here can help.
I have a Liteon dvd rw and cd rw combo.everything works fine, I can play DVDs I have been using this rom for several months. In "my computer" Windows recognizes the drive as DVD rw drive F.however when I put in a BLANK DVD disc Windows changes the designation of the drive to cd drive f.this applies to any blank DVD disc I insert. At this point, Windows no longer recognizes the DVD and I cannot download anything to the DVD from my PC via Windows.
I have Nerorom burning and use it to burn DVDs with. And I don't have any trouble with that.why do I need to use Nero on all my burning applications even if I want to save something from my PC? When I first installed the liteon DVD RW Windows recognized it and I could at that time burn to it, any of the information that I wanted that was on my PC , for instance a full backup of my system.I even tried formatting the DVD, but to no avail.(used Nero for this).
So I guess the question is why is Windows changing the designation of my DVD rom to cd and preventing me from writing to my DVD-ROM.
Thank you: CLKP
