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:
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

A bit of a long shot but I bought some cheap CDs and cheap DVD +RW and had the same problem. In fact the disks themselves were faulty and a new batch cured the problem.
Best of luck
