media player not recognizing cd-rw-DVD drive
On my friends computer (a sony laptop running windows xp) the windows media player does not seem to be working correctly. He can play a music cd on it, and the PROGRAM not the computer entirely recognizes it as a cd-rw-dvd drive. When he takes the audio disk out and puts in a blank disk which he wants to burn stuff onto, the program, when refreshed, seems to have changed its mind, and only recognies the drive as a cd playing drive, not a cd-rw-DVD. The computer has no problem recognizing audio and data cds, but just burning them with windows media palyer isw the problem. iTunes works and allows him to burn cds with it. Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated.
