Hello, I recently have this problem with my dvd writer. I have formatted my hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP, and now my DVD-RW drive will not work. It comes up as a CD Drive when i insert a blank DVD-R disc into the drive, and it says "Drive not accessible" when i try to explore it. And it will no longer burn DVDs. Please help, i went to system and it says it is a DVD-RW IDE1008. Thank you.
