Mine looks like that with no disk also. You need to be clear on the problem, not show a pic and say fix it. | Report abuse ashman007 June 7, 2008 5:46:24 PM Thanks for the response doormatderek. This image is of a LG CD/DVD Writer. I think the file system should have been unknown or NTFS, not raw and type should have been DVD Drive. Whenever I insert a DVD inside it doesn't recognize it as a DVD. I always get this message: F:\ drive is not accessible. Incorrect function. | Report abuse roadrunner197069 June 7, 2008 5:53:57 PM XP or Vista? You might need a driver. Load up a free trial of Cyberlink or other DvD decoder. XP doesnt have DvD support built in out of box. | Report abuse ashman007 June 7, 2008 6:16:51 PM Mine is a XP. I always use a free version, whichever I get from download.com (mostly 30 days) to write DVDs. I might have the CD (misplaced?) still which I got when I purchased this DVD Writer. I will load the driver again.
