DVDRW issues
Ever since I upgraded to Vista from XP, my DVD drive hasn't worked properly.
I can no longer burn any data whatsoever. No pictures, music, files, etc. My
also does no recognize DVDs anymore. I insert a DVD movie, the drive
to run it, but it never does. It does still recognize music CDs, but nothing
more. I know that it is not a hardware issue since everything worked
perfectly while on XP. When I checked the device manager, it states that
everything is working properly. It is a Slimtype DVDRW SOSW-852S ATA device,
if that helps. Any assistance would be highly appreciated. Thanks in
