A8N320-SLI Deluxe motherboard.  Windows XP PRO SP2, all critical updates.
Burner is an HP dvd640e

Device manager shows correct make and model drive.
Once I put a blank dvd - R in drive, windows says it is an CDROM DRIVE.  Once I take disk out, it goes back to being an DVD-RW.

Windows has a built in burning engine from Roxio that allows drag and drop burning.  This system is a new install using nvidia nForce driver 6.86.

I am looking for a solution to this problem.
Funny thing is,  Nero is now installed and I can burn with Nero just fine.... but NOT with windows XP built in burning abilities.
