What could help is to go to the site of whatever media program you were using that could have caused the problem. Search for some sort of full clean install. I bet that does the trick.
I definitely removed all filters I could recognize as filters, upper and lower.
I have now uninstalled all of the programs I was messing around with and then installed the NERO lite that came with the new DVD-RW. Same problem. I kept my main software -- WinDVD -- intact.
The NERO utility reads the drive for what it is. It is just that Windows sees it as CD only.
[I don't know if this could be related, but my Windows Movie Maker, which I use for certain things, started crashing out at the same time this problem happened, assumedly because I had too much DirectShow stuff on my system.]
[Jahshaka also stopped rendering on me, but that should not have effected the drive, right?]
Be excellent to each other.
