Last week I had a looping "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" blue screen that kept me from starting Windows. I was able to use my XP Home (SP2) disc to eventually boot and fix this issue.
There's only one problem now - my DVD-RW drive is showing up as "CD Drive" when I insert any discs (blank, data, cd, DVD, old...new...various brands). The weird thing is that IsoBuster and Nero InCD both can read any discs I put into the drive. Even iTunes recognizes when I insert a blank disc, but again, under "My Computer" it shows as an empty E:/"CD Drive".
Here are my specs:
AMD 64 4000+ Notebook
HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GCA-4080N (driver version 5.1.2535.0)
I've read quite a few other articles. I've also changed the IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service to "Automatic"...though under "Description" it still doesn't say "Started" unless I manually start it. I've uninstalled Nero, and reinstalled it. If I try to burn anything, it will burn as long as I'm burning less than 2gb on a dvd-r.
The main hassle is, while i CAN read all of my cds/dvd/dvd-r's/etc when using a 3rd party program, I can't seem to get XP to read anything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
