    Have you tried downloading and installing the drivers from the manufacturer's website?

    yes ive tried doin this it says my drive has version 1.71
    and ittries to update it to 1.73 its firmware but it wont update it
    ive also noticed there is no driver from xp for dvd just cd rom drivers
    ive tried a different dvd writer too a vom and its still does the same thing acting like a cd drive

    I would go in to the 'Device Manager' and try to roll back the driver.

    Have you installed SP2?
