I have Windows XP Pro as an operating system.
My DVD/RW drive has been working fine until several days ago. It will not recognize a DVD and when I view the Drive in explorer is shows as a DVD-RW drive until I insert a blank DVD in the drive then it appears as a CD drive only.
I have tried Microsoft support - Mr. Fix IT it did not help results were your drive does not have writing capabilities.
I have tried editing the registry and removing the upper and lower filters - no help
