MY COMPUTER sees Sony DVD/R/RW as a CD DRIVE

    After installing a new Sony DVD +R/RW -R/RW in My computer it was seen as a DVDR, after installing the Windows Service pack 2 I lost the ability to burn and DVDR is seen as a CD DRIVE...?

    I was getting an error message when burning with Nero but with the help of Afterdawn found the fix - disable "IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service". But Identity in MY COMPUTER still states its a CD DRIVE not a DVD burner....?

    Any Hints...?

    Try uninstalling the drive through Device Manager, rebooting a let windows reinstall the drive.
