Default dvd rw drive rpob..

hi, ive recentley purchased a dvd rewrite drive, its a sony DW-Q30A.. anyway when i got it i did make a couple of dvd back ups, however now for some reason when im sticking in a dvd+rw it seems to think its a cd-rw and wont do wot i want. i cant even try to erase the disc. does anyone know what is goin on here and why? if my drive is now faulty ima flip a gasket! lol.

ive tried a few dsics incase one was damaged but it does it to all. it reads dvds ok. just dont seem to like my rw's now.

i recentley stuck in another dvd drive so i could do straight copys and since then it hasnt worked properly. u think it could be how i installed it? my rw drive is slave and the reader is master.

anyway any help would muchly be appreciated. thanks in advance.

Did you update the firmware of the DVD RW? (if you didn't please don't).

Also, what OS are you running.
