    I can not access DVD media (read or write). I have:
    1) Uninstalled all 3rd party burning software.
    2) Deleted the upper and lower filters.
    3) Went into the properties of each drive and enabled recording.
    4) Edited the HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CD Burning\Drives\ and changed the Drive Type so that one drive is a 2 and the other is a 3.

    Win XP Home was clean installed in July '08. All updates are current. Currently running SP3. Using Kaspersky Anti-Virus and no viruses have been found.

    Anybody have any ideas?
