Argh! DVD-RW not working in Win XP!



Ok, I hope some can help me out:

OS: Windows XP Pro

I used to have two cd-roms, 1) a DVD-R/RW and DVD-Rom player, which can play Cd-Roms by the way and 2) a CD-R/RW player. The CD-RW was letter G and DVD-R was letter H.

I had to take out the CD-RW since it broke. Windows XP booted up. And my DVD-R became letter G. I couldn't access since Win XP was telling me it was a Cd-Rom!!

So I change the DVD-R letter back to H. Everything was fine, or so I thought. When I boot up into Windows XP it recognizes it as a DVD-R but maybe 10 minutes later. Windows Explorer tells me it is a CD-RW!

When I insert anything CD-R, DVD-R, CD-RW, CD-ROM, DVD, nothing happens. :(

Anyone knows what the problem is?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
