I'm running XP Home. When I put in a data dvd into the drive it is showing the drive in My Computer as a cd drive and will not read the data dvd.
It is a Memorex DVD+-RAM 510L DVD drive.
It is set to be the primary with my Sony CD/RW drive.

Any ideas on why this is happening and what I need to do to fix it.

Howdy,

Did it ever read this particular disk?

Does it read other DVD disks like movies etc.?

Sometimes it will read a disk, movie, etc, and then the next time I try it, it won't read the same disk.
Not sure why it's doing this. This is even a new DVD writer I just put in to replace the one that was doing the same thing so I do believe it's something in XP causing it, but not sure.
