Okay, here's my problem. Windows XP refuses to recognize my DVD-RW discs. On Microsoft's support pages it tells me that it's Service Pack 2 should fix this error, but I'm operating under that service pack and it doesn't. All that happens when I load a DVD-RW disc into my DVD-RAM drive is that it changes from [DVD-RAM Drive (D:)] to [CD Drive (D:)] and tells me I have no media inserted.
I'm running Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 under Service Pack 2. My DVD-RAM drive is a MATbleepA DVD-RAM UJ-8205. I'm on a Toshiba notebook computer.
I have the exact same issue. I contacted the manufacturer of my DVD Drive (Sony), but no updated firmware is available. I currently have sp2 installed. I downloaded a hotfix from Microsoft, but I still have this problem. Any suggestions?
- has at any point prior, this drive been recognised by the os and working
- in devmgmt.msc is it there and what is it recognised as
- in diskmgm.msc what is it recogniesd as
- does the maker's site have infomation about this
- is the product under warenty, can one replace it
