I have 2 Dell computers (one laptop, one desktop) networked together running XP and neither will recognize their drives as CD RW -- only as regular CD drives. I tried replacing the drives, updating the drivers, reinstalling the drivers, repairing the registry, editing the registry as described in Microsoft's article ID # 316529 to set the drive type to RW all to no avail. The drives will read discs just fine, but won't burn discs.

My theory is that something got corrupted by a virus (esp. since its on two computers networked together) (but no evidence of viruses - maybe I should try different antivirus software -- am running AVG) or other software (but haven't installed new software recently). The drives used to work! I am stumped. :4-dontkno Any ideas? I haven't done an OS repair or reinstall yet -- thinking of trying that.
