DVD-R/CD-RW drive is not being recognized in my recording programs

  1. Hi,
    my DVD-R/CD-RW drive is not being recognized in my recording programs and media player. If I right click the
    drive itself, it shows that it is working fine and that windows recognize it as a recording drive. However,
    neither Media Player nor Nero recognizes that there is a drive. Nero keeps trying to create images, not burn a CD / DVD.
    It worked fine in the past.

    reload driver..

    I would reload the driver for the dvd writer; that driver could be corrupted.
