DVD-RW Disc Being Recognized as CD
Posted on 2005-03-11
I'm having a problem with DVD-RW or DVD+RWs being recognized as CDs or CDRWs in WinXP Pro, which is causing a problem with backup software that I am using (Backup Platinum). It's happening with several different drives so I'm not going to list them unless there is a need. When I place the DVD+or-RW disc in the drive windows says it is a CD even after formatting it (just using Neros formating tool). It also reports that the disc has no size (total and free) and that the file format is CDFS. Any suggestions or help on why this is happening would be greatly appreciated. I don't believe it is a driver issue as one of the drives came stock with the system and there haven't been any upgrades or changes that would've caused this to my knowledge.
