DVD drive problem...

  Nathman 04:01 08 Sep 2007

I currently have a Lite-On dvd+rw drive in my computer. Today I put a blank dvd into the drive, and nothing happened, I then tried a film and the same happened again, I repeated this process a few times with the same result. My computer has since decided that the dvd drive is now just a cd drive (I know this because in My Computer it has now been renamed as a cd drive and shows as a cd drive in properties), I am completely baffled by this and am finding it very frustrating so any help/information on why this might of happened and what I can do to fix it would be great.

Thanks for trying but that didn't work for me, I aslo forgot to point out that when I put a blank dvd in it gives me the message 'D:\ is not accessible. Incorrect Function.'

Try upgrading the firmware

Right click Start>My Computer>Right Click>preferences>Hardware>device manager

Now click the minus on the left hand side under dvd/cd-rom drives, right click on the drive thats the problem and select uninstall.

Now restart the computer.

Again thanks for trying, but still not luck, it just re-installs as a cd-rom drive.
