  1. USB DVD-RW drive shows up as CD-ROM even with new DVD-R disk in drive


    I have two PC's running Windows 10.


    I plug in the DVD-RW drive into one, it shows up as a CD Drive, I plug into the other, it shows up as DVD-RW drive with 4.x GB free space....



    CD Drive Machine:

    Windows 10 Pro N - 10.0.1734 Build 17134


    DVD-RW Drive Machine

    Windows 10 Pro - 10.1734 Build 17134


    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drive software (default Windows) but to no avail.


    I've also tried the ubiquitous : "DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth " and "sfc /scannow"


    Both to no avail.


    What else is left ?

    :)

  2. DVD Drive not Reading DVD+RW or DVD+R DL disks

    My DVD drive (F) will not write on a
    DVD+RW disk or a DVD+R DL disk. I have no problem using regular DVD's. (only RW & DL). I've researched online and I uninstalled the driver as per the instructions and restarted my computer but the problem
    wasn't fixed. Any suggestions? Thanks

    First HD DVD ROM Drive Announced in Japan

    Japanese Buffalo announced the release of the first HD DVD ROM drive for PCs, offering playback of double-layer 30GB HD DVD video movies. Dubbed "HDV-ROM2.4FB", the ATAPI drive will retail in the Japanese market late December at a suggested retail price of 37,000 Yen ($322). The drive is based on the Toshiba SD-H802A HD DVD ROM drive, and is capable of reproducing both single layer (15GB) and double layer (30GB) HD DVD-ROM media at 2.4x (CLV, 10708.8 KB/s). Other specifications include reading of DVD-ROM and DVD±R (SL and DL) as well as DVD±RW media at 5x. As for the CD-ROM, CD-R and CD-RW formats, the Buffalo drive supports reading at a speed of 15x maximum. Buffalo HDV-ROM2.4FB is one of the first HD DVD ROM drives for the computer market that have been publicly introduced. NEC(HR-1100A) and HP(hd100) also introduced HD DVD ROM drives earlier this year, which never showed up on the market.
