When I insert a CD-R into the generic (Sanyo) drive, the icon to represent
the drive changes from CD-RW drive to a large disc icon with a CD-RW tag on
it. When I try to format the disk using VOB Instant Write, an error is always
reported. I assume this is because the disc is showing up as a RW disc.
However, when I place the same CD-R into the DVD-RW drive, its icon changes
from DVD-RW drive to a large disk icon but this time with the correct CD-R
label. This same disc can then be formatted using Instant Write. This means
that when I want to burn CDs, I have to use the slower DVD burner. I not
sure if this is a hardware or a software problem. Can anyone please help?
Ie tried a few things. As I have been unable to gain access to the VOB
site, I decided to uninstall Instant Write and try a different CD burning
programme. This did not solve the problem. When a CD-R was inserted into
the CD-RW drive, Windows explorer showed up the disc to be a CD-RW rather
than a CD-R. XP Burner Pro 3 also detected the disc as CD-RW when it was in
the CD-RW drive. When I inserted the same disc into the DVD-RW drive, XP
Burner Pro 3 detected it as CD-R but it wouldn allow access to it. I use
Music Match Jukebox to burn music CDs but when I tried to do so after
uninstalling Instant Write and installing XP Burner Pro 3, Music Match
Jukebox reported that no CD/DVD drives had been detected and so I had to
restore XP to the state prior to uninstallation.
At least now I can use my DVD-RW to burn CD-R discs but my CD-RW has become
redundant. Although CD-RW shows up correctly, whenever I try to format it, I
always get the n error occurred during formatmessage. If I have a CD-R
in the DVD-RW drive (bear with me, I know this is getting confusing) and then
insert a CD-RW disc into the CD-RW drive, nothing is detected. Windows
simply reports lease insert a disk If I insert a CD-R disc into the
CD-RW drive, while there is a CD-R disk in the DVD-RW drive (correctly
recognised), then the CD-R disc in the CD-RW drive is recognised as a CD-RW
disc, which means that I won be able to format it. Fortunately, the DVD-RW
drive still recognises DVD-R and DVD-RW correctly, although the DVD-RW drive
icon in Windows explorer changes to a CD drive icon with a DVD-R tab on it.
When I disable the DVD-RW drive, I still get CD-R discs showing up as CD-RW.
When using MM Jukebox Plus to burn a music CD, the media type for a CD-R
shows up as CD-RW.
