Error: D:\ is not accessible. Incorrect function

  1. Hello,

    The following is my laptop spec:

    Technology TL-60
    1.99Ghz, 1.87BG of Ram,
    Physical Address Extension
    Matshita DVD-Ram UJ-860H

    Windows XP Professional
    Version 2002
    Service Pack 3

    Now, whenever I insert a cd on my Matshita DVD-Ram UJ-860H, it shows this error message:
    "D:\ is not accessible. Incorrect function".
    I experience the same whenever I insert a blank dvd rw.
    However, if the dvd rw is not blank then I am able to see the contents of the dvd rw disc without getting this error.
    What is wrong ?

    On my Windows Registry, I have 24 instances of this:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    and on more than one of then the "Upper Filter" exists therefore I am unable to decide which one's "Upper" I should delete to see if the problem gets fixed or not.
    I have seen on many forums others experiencing the same and getting advised to uninstall Roxio but I don't think I have it or the Nero because I can't find them on my Start-> All Programs.
    And, I don't think that, me not having a cd burner software is the problem because like I mentioned before, I am able to see the contents of a dvd disc inserted on my dvd drive providing the disc is not empty.

    I have seen the following solution mentioned on the internet:
    "Got to the Drive letter in Windows Explorer
    and right clicking on it. Go to Properties; Click on Recording; Check "Enable CD recording on this drive".
    But the problem is, I can see only this much on my WinXp SP3:
    Windows Explorer-> DVD-Ram'
    and after right clicking on it -> Properties; but there is no "recording" tab.
    Therefore, I cannot check the "Enable CD recording on this drive" option.

    I am really stuck now ! Can some techie specialist help ?

    Thank You
