    Hi everyone :

    here's my problem,
    my cd-rw is capable of reading music, dvd and game cds... But can't read ( detect ) recordable cds ... even if i have updated the drivers.

    First try different media.. Then update the drives firmware.. Firmware, not drivers..

    Look for firmware for the drive at www.cdfreaks.com or at the manufactuers website.

    Well thank you for your reply,

    I did the firmware update but... it doesn't fix the problem ...

    I really don't know what to do.

    have you tried to reinstall the drives. goto the device mgr ,click on cdrom to open it. right click on the drive that is not working ,click remove ,restart the computer and let the hardware wizard reinstall the drive.
