Hi,
My problem is that my DVD-R/CD-RW drive is not being
recognized in most of my programs. If I right click the
drive itself, it says that it is working finea nd that
windows recognizes it as a recording drive. However,
neither Media Player nor Nero notice recognize that there
is a drive. I have a Daemon tools virtual drive if that
makes a difference. Any help would be great, as I'd hate
to finally have a DVD drive and not be able to burn
movies.
Thanks for any help.

If you are trying to use XP's built-in burning function, it is not
compatible with DVD burners. Your DVD burner should have come with its own
software, did you install it. Also, note, there is no packet writing
capability in XP; that's the drag and drop function or saving a file
directly to CD as in CD-R or RW. If you have applications that work with
the XP burning function, they might have worked with CD-Rs or RW media but
for the most part, packet writing software must be installed for this to
work and that would apply to either CD-R-RW or DVD burning.

I am not using XP's burning function. My DVD drive did
not come with any sofware thatI know about, as it came
with my computer. I have no made a recovery disc (can't
burn one), but I do have the drive, so maybe I could
reinstall something off of there? My biggest problem is
that none of my burning programs (Nero, Media Player,
Intervideo winDVD) are recognizing the drive as a
recording drive, only one of the image drives I have
(Nero keeps trying to create images, not burn a CD, Media
Player tells me I have no drives).

Have you always had this problem? Since the drive came with your computer,
have you contacted the computer manufacturer's tech support about this
issue? Have you checked to make sure the version of Nero and WinDVD are
compatible with XP and your specific make and model DVD, you should check
the application websites for that information.

I guess Misery Loves Company, but its good to know you
are not alone, or someone else is in the same boat.

I recently built a new computer and performed a fresh
install of windows XP Pro SP1 as the OS.
MOTHERBOARD : MSI-KM3M-V
BIOS VERSION : VIA KM266 Pro/KM400/ KM400A (From Box)
Phoenix-Award Bios V6.00PG (From Display)
W7061VMS V3.0 042004 13:20:41
04/20/2004 KM400-8235-6A6LYM4BC-00
CHIPSET : VIA VT8237
CPU: ATHLON XP 1700+
RAM: 500 Meg (w/ 32 meg shared)
OS : Microsoft Windows XP SP1 using NTFS
(OEM version purchased with all the other stuff)
PRIMARY IDE CONFIGURATION:
MASTER : HDD 80 GIG
SLAVE : (NONE)
SECONDARY IDE CONFIGURATION :
MASTER : (First Try)LiteOn SOHW-1633S 16X DVD +/-R/+-RW
Drive SOHW-1633
MASTER : (Second Try) Optorite DD1205 12X DVD +/-RW (mfg
July 2004).
SLAVE : Memorex 48MAX-244816A CD R/+/-RW

The DVD drive can be used to install WIN XP SP1, but
after installation of OS
The OS no longer recognizes the DVD Drive as anything
other than an unknown
IDE device (My Computer) In the device manage WinXP
correctly identifies both of the
DVD's tried but displays a yellow exclamation point.
Checking properties I
get: "This drive cannot start (Code 10).
Same results obtained with both DVD writers tried.
(Can't read, write, does not even recognise it as a CD-
rom drive.)
This makes it impossible to load any device drivers, or
additional programs.
IN Addition The Memorex unit which is a DVD player and CD
ROM R/RW device cannot
read CDs even though Windows XP Device Manager reports it
a fully operational.
The Memorex, LiteOn, and Optorite are all allegedly "WIN
XP Compatible" according
to their respective manufacturers. MS lists these
devices as WIN XP compatible.
I have checked the cables, master/slave jumpers, power
connectors. Even swapped
out Memory Modules, and the symptoms remain.

HOWEVER:
The Memorex, LiteOn, and Optorite are all correctly
recognised and work well when
installed on this machine with Win98SE, AND on other
machines using Win XP SP2, Win 2000.

My Problem is with WIN XP, but what have I done wrong, or
what haven't I done.

all help appreciated
