I hope this is the right place for this, my Operating system is Windows XP home
My DVD-RW drive isn't being recognised as a DVD-RW drive, it just comes up in my
computers as a CD-R drive.
I can burn Audio Cd's and Video DVD's but when it comes to burning a Data Disk
either CD or DVD it gives me error messages, depending on what I use to attempt
burn (Nero 7 Ultra and just the stand microsoft drag and drop deal)
I have installed another CD/DVD-RW drive to see if it was a hardware issue, but
same thing happened.
I have unistalled the Drive and Reinstalled it, and even updated the Drivers.
seems to be helping, and I am totally at a loss as to what the reason is.
I am leaving a reformatting to the very last option as I have lots of photos I
want to loss (including wedding photos, etc). Figures when I try to back them up
I discover that for some reason I can not burn a data disk.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
