my xp computer has two dvd rw burners, and they show up as dvd rws in my computer when there is no dvd in the drive, but when i was trying to burn some data to a blank dvd, the drive then showed up as "cd drive". When i pop the blank dvd out, it goes back to dvd rw
can you help

As long as those optical drives are being detected and are working like they're supposed to, don't worry about the drives changing names when you insert or remove a disc.

Make sure you select the correct optical drive in the burning software window, especially if one only burns CD's and doesn't burn DVD's.

There's a difference between what DVD/CDRW and DVD+/-RW drives can do.
