You have it set in RAM mode, which is it is being operated as a extra hard drive. you will need a optional software/driver package (if your pc/laptop) don't have it already, in order to set it back to cd/dvd mode. incidently, that software/driver is hard to come by.

look for as "dvd-ram driver download"...

Check for the cables, also check for the IDE Master Slave setting and try settting the drive to primary IDE socket. Re installing drivers might also help.

MY DVD PLAYER ON MY COMPUTER WILL NOT READ INSERTED DVD-RW IT SAYS IT IS A DVD RAM


There are three DVD types: DVD-RW, DVD+RW and DVD RAM
Your computer must be able to read the DVD format or type that is inserted. This is not something where you can just download a program to change. It is in the hardware for your computer. Your computer tried to read the title track of the DVD that you thought was "DVD-RW" and it could not read it but based on the signature that it read thought that it was in "DVD RAM" format.

Solution: This computer will not read that DVD. Either get the information on a compatible formated DVD or find another machine that has DVD RAM capability to read it.
