CDRW Drive Recognition



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:
Have you checked for a firmware update from Yamaha for your burner?
My Burning Software does Recognize it.. Will Check for Firmware right now!!
hmm? my DVD/CD-ROM drives are in one section...

and my cd-rw is listed under cd-rom drives problem for me...

but you're talking about the device manager right?
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.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
