It's quite possible your new DVD writer isn't completely compatible with your old computer's motherboard. Mind sharing what model of Compaq you using?

My Sony and Asus DVD-RW writers were also detected as DVD-RAM drives, though they could read/write on DVD's just fine.

Maybe the drive is defective?
