Matshita UJDA710 DVD/RW Combo - Unable to Read DVD Media

I own a Sony Vaio FX405 with Matshita UJDA710 DVD/RW Combo drive.  This has functioned normally under WinXP Home. I have ungraded to XP Pro, however, now the drive can only read/write CDs, it CANNOT read DVDs - the volume appears 'empty' in explorer.  I can playback audio CDs.  I have already checked relevant threads, mostly people report the converse problem.  Sony support doesn't mention this problem.  Panasonic also seem rather elusive re:Matshita drivers etc.  I have installed relevant codecs and Intervideo WinDVD software. I am reluctant to revert back to XP Home.  Can anyone help!  I'm mystified!

I would recommend to upgrade firmware on this drive.
Go to Panasonic and Vaio  web sites to check if it's available.

I have tried to find recent firmware without success. I have tried removing & reinstalling the drive. Panasonic (Matshita don't provide support). I have tried more or less everything I can think of, without success.  Perhaps I ought to sacrifice a chicken or call Sony DVD support, who knows how long I'll be in a cue, but c'est la vie.
