I have 2x DVD RW drives in my machine.the jumper on the first drive is set to master and the second is set to slave,but when Win XP boots up and I go to My Comp/Drives it sees them as DVD-RW and DVD-RAM! is that right?.
There are also 2 "ghost " drives both marked with the DVD logo which I cannot remove and I dont know what they are??Any clues anyone...Thanks Richard

Hi horlor44!

Some DVD R/W drives are seen as DVD-RAM drives by Windows XP. I see this especially in toshiba laptops. Lets take a look and see exactly what you have. Download Everest Home Edition using the link in my signature and install it. Run a system scan and post the results, as an ATTACMENT, to your next post here and we will see what you really have. :tazz:

Sorry Fenor Ive screwed up, it IS a RAM drive ,I must have moved the other RW drive to my other machine. I must have been drunk or something! anyhow, should the DVD-RW be slave and DVD-RAM be master for copying purposes?..Many Thanks
