Help Dvd drive is showing as cd drive

  dkuk2000 08:53 12 Sep 2006

I have a LG HL-DT-STDVDRAM GSA-4163B drive which has been no problem until last night.
When i insert a blank dvd it shows as cd drive (in my computer)but when i remove the blank disc it shows dvdram drive again,i tried a dvd movie in the drive and it recognized it no problem.
So i thought i would try to burn a dvd with dive using nero 6,everything went fine until the point of burning and then i was given an error message telling me that the drive was in use unable to burn.
I've used nero tools and it reports back that the drive is fine,i don't know what else to try any suggestions ?.

When viewing a blank DVD in my computer it will show as a CD drive as it cannot read the blank disk.

Sometimes the windows XP write program causes a problem with Nero. Go to my computer right click on drive/properties/recording and make sure the tick is remove from enable recording on this drive reboot computer and try again.
