Default DVD RAM or DVDRW

I bought a HP laptop (dv2000t) with Windows XP Professional six months back. Along with it, I bought inbuilt Super Multi DVD RW Drive. I also got Windows VISTA as an free upgrade offer. After I installed VISTA, I got some problem with the sound card. So I sent the laptop back to HP Service center. They reinstalled it back to Windows XP Professional with the factory settings.

After that I got a strange problem. When I open Windows Explorer, the DVD Drive is shown as DVDRAM. Previously it used to show as DVD-RW and I could write DVD data discs with Windows Explorer. Now I could not write DVD using explorer. But I could write a DVD disc using Roxio Sonic software.

I also tried to install VISTA once again just to check. Windows Explorer shows it as DVD-RW. Again I am back to Windows XP with no luck on this problem.

I want to have the ability to write DVDs using windows explorer. Can anyone please help me on this?
If need more details, please let me know.

Try looking for some drivers for the dvd-rw drive and install them. It may work!
