    I have an AOpen DUW1608/ARR DVD-RW drive. It worked great until a day or so ago, and then all of a sudden it only reads CDs and not DVDs. I have tried updating the firmware, I have tried restore points back to when it did work. When no disc is in the drive My Computer says its a DVD-RW drive. When a DVD is in the drive, the light flashes on the drive and eventually it is shown as a CD-ROM. I can open the drive but I do not see any contents.

    I apologize if this issue has been asked before. But can anyone help.
