I have a Dell Dimension 3100 and it appears to have a TDK DVDRW0404N drive. I get that info by right-clicking on the drive in Windows Explorer and it also shows this under System Device Manager.
When no disc is in the drive, Windows Explorer shows "DVD-RW Drive (E:)". However, when I insert a DVD-R blank into the drive, Windows Explorer then displays "CD Drive "(E:)"
What's up with that?
Is this drive model supposed to be able to write to DVD? If so, why does the above happen? Also, I've tried using using AVS DVD Authoring to burn a DVD and I get an Error.
