I have a sony dual layer disc drive it wont reconize DV-R or DV-RW or dual layer discs, it will only reconize all disc as 750mb discs, it was working pefectly well but has just recently developed this fault.

Try uninstalling it from Device Manager and rebooting - Windows should Find New Hardware and reinstall the basic Windows CDROM driver.

Hi Stuartli

Have done as you suggested, still same problem, the drive will read DVD's but as soon as you put DVD-r or DVD-rw in drive it goes back to a CD drive when you take the disc out it reverts back to a DVD-rw drive.

How old is the drive?

May be worth having it replaced under the guarantee.
