DVD Writer not recognized by my computer

  bknownst 23:21 09 Jul 2009

Last week-end I tried to burn a dvd and for some reason my computer now sees my dvd writer as a cdrom instead of a dvd drive. My drive still reads dvd disks and cd disks fine but for some reason the drive shows up in my computer as a cdrom. Someone told me this could be caused by an itunes update I installed over the week-end.Any help I can get correcting this problem will be greatly appreciated.

Try Uninstalling the rewriter from Device Manager and Rebooting to Reinstall it.

No matter what type of drive you have, it's just an optical drive to Windows and the same basic driver is used.
