Problem with DVDRW Drive

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by John Deppel, Dec 3, 2004.


  1. The solution to this problem has been eluding me for the past few days, so I thought I'd see if anyone here at TB has any new things to try.

    Everytime I put a blank DVD disk into my DVD+RW/-RW drive, the drive is then shown as a "CD Drive" in My Computer, and I am unable to drag and drop files onto the disk. It just says "Windows is unable to copy the file *.*" I've downloaded the latest firmware updates for the drive, uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers, and the problem still persists. If it's of use to anyone, it's an NEC drive, Model 2500A.

    Any ideas?
