    Windows Xp Does not recognize my CDRW drive a Burner. It says its a CD Drive, but it recognizes my DVD drive as a DVD drive.
    What can I do to change it. I tried reinstalling it but that didnt work. Any guesses?:confused:

    Does your burning software recognize it as a burner?

    Have you checked for a firmware update from Yamaha for your burner?

    In Device manager it repors it as a Yamaha CDRW then when you click on properties it lists it as a cd/dvd drive.

    In Windows Explorer it lists it as a CD drive..
    Just wondering why it does this because on my friends computer it list his drive correctly in Device manager and Windows explorer.
