My D: drive is a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR 110D drive. My computer( XP SP3 Media Center) only recognizes it as a CD-ROM. Properties do not show record. I can record with it using Nero or other third party software programs. I have used a USB DVD-RW that is also only recognized as CD-ROM.I can also record on this with third party programs. I have another computer with XP SP3 Home that recognized the USB DVD-RW as record. Why does XP Home recognize the DVD-RW drive but XP Media Center does not? I have all of the updates for both computers.

Hi JN -

Can you list the make and model (if known) of your computer .

Also have you read any paperwork etc. from the CD / DVD player to see if it is meant to be a Recorder or just a player ?
Next , are you trying to 'over-ride' a built in unit, or is this the only CD / DVD player on your system ?
Note that DVD -"RW" simply means "Re-Write" and nothing to do with Recording. It may have just been the Disc that was in the unit at the time.

Place a CD + or - R in the drive and see if you can record to that CD.

Thank You -
Check the link below for full details on your Pioneer unit

My computer is a Sony RB VGC-RB62G. The D: drive is the one that I use for CD and DVD recording using third party soft ware(Nero).I used to be able to use D: drive for recording without third party soft ware. Do you think an update caused this problem?
