i just installed a dvd writer in place of a dvd rom that i had. the new drive isrecognised and according to device manager so is my other drive, a cd writer but if i try to access a cd in my cd writer via 'my computer' the cd writer is not shown, instead 'dvd-rw drive'is shown as well as my new one.

if i put the disc in the drive and let it play automatically then it works fine but i just can't access the drive from 'my computer'. whats' going on??

In Device Manager, try removing all the CD/DVD drives shown. Then restart the system and let Win find them again - perhaps it'll get them right after that.
