But as a mod locked it, I have decided to post a new one.
It just started happening the other day. I went to sleep as my dvd burner was burning some home movies, woke up to swap the disks out and then it started having an issue.
Every time I insert a blank dvd+r into the drive it changes to a cd-drive and asks what i want to do to the blank cd. I know it is not the media as I have been using the same dvds for a while now. I have inserted dvds that i burned before and it reads them fine, but when I insert blank media it changes.
I use a 3rd party program (Convertx to DVD) I have spent the last week making sure my drives were free of all malware, I have tried 3 different dvd burners, all to no avail. every time I insert a blank dvd my drive turns into a cd-rom and asks me what I want to do with my blank cd.
also using win xp sp3
To sum up;
Not the drive itself
happened all of a sudden
I dont know what plextor is, and I have tried multiple dvd types, but the main one I have worked fine just before, I was in the middle of the spindle when this happened. I also tried other dvd's from the same spindle incase one was just setup wrong.
I decided to get a larger hdd that was a sata setup, so I could return the dvd writer inside the case hooked up through the IDE drive, but now I'm having issues with the hard drive too, which I posted about in the HDD section
