    ok firmware is updated
    dvd wont burn on blank dvds
    i have a sohw-1213s

    i have tried many differnt brands.
    perfectly burn blank cds
    i uninstall and reinstall
    i uninstalled and unpluged it from my computer and put it back..

    does anyone have any software for an sohw-1213 i might be able to reinstall?

    also when i put a blank dvd it changes to a cd drive. like so

    from this.. dvd-rw(e drive)

    to this..cd drive (e drive)

    it recognizes it as a blank dvdr but dosnt burn

    That is normal for My Computer to show that drive as a CD-drive when blank dvd is inserted.Notice the Bold DVD-R under that E drive icon-it knows there's a dvd in it.

    Did you go through device manager/cdrom dvd drives/click drivers tab/unistall drivers/and reboot?

    Are those drives configured correctly? The Jumper pins on the back of the drive matching the corrector connector of your IDE ribbon?

    Your C drive should be Primary master.
    The E and F drives can be configured a couple different ways.

    Your reader drive,Secondary Master-set jumpers to MA
    Your burning drive,Secondary slave,unless you got a dell and you'll have to use Cable select-C/S.Set jumpers to SL or CS.

    Make sure all cables are seated correctly.

    What's the current firmware version?
    What's the brand name and speed rate of those blank -r's?
