I am trying to burn a DVD. I have burned DVDs on my laptop for 3 years. But recently it is not letting me.
1. Explorer shows my DVD drive as a CD drive
2. Whenever I try to burn to a DVD it tells me there is no valid recordable device detected.
3. I am using MyDVD (Sonic) which always tells me that DMA is turned off. I have tuned DMA on on both my primary and secondary devices in device manager but I am still told that DMA is off.
I have a Laptop Compaq (HP) Presario V3000
In device manager I am told that my DVD/CD ROM Drive is MATSHITA DVD-RAM UL850S. (the device is working properly)
I have tried for months but have finally given up.
Please, can anyone help.
