    I had to reinstall Windows Xp and backed all my Apps up to a dvd using Nero..got the PC (Dell Dimension 9100) up and running..but can't get to my Apps on the DVD because the drive won't read it. I throw the DVD in and the drive through Explorer says its a CD drive and can't read it. I downloaded Nero and burned a file to a DVD and it burned int in ISO/9660 mode..not UDF. So Im thinking the problem is finding a UDF driver for the drive...therin lies the problem.. I could not find it or even the DVD model on the website... Any idea's?? thanks

    Ever thought about Crossflashing that drive into a BenQ1640? Just look for the flasher utility and download the latest 1640 firmware and you're good to go. Did it on mine, now I can use all the features of QSuite. Just something to consider. =)
