My pc recognises my dvdram as cdrom, after re installing.

Quote "i have an LG HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22NS40, it was working properly before, but after i had refrmatted my pc and re install the drive, my pc recognises it just a cd-rom, explorer shows it is a dvdram but when i insert a disc it changes icon to cd-rom. someone help me please!! thanks!!! jeffoy_magiting. i have a similar issue. Generic drivers used as default for the 4M-HL-DT-ST GH15F ATA Drive in my Acer Aspire M5201 when I upgraded VISTA Op-Sys to 64 bit. Many of the functions lost." No obvious 64 bit driver downloads available form LG. shame... unless you know better.

    sussed this oddness:

    delete the keys UPPERLIMIT and LOWERLIMIT

    Unistall the drive with Device Mangler and then scan for hardware changes.
    drive behaves itself as expected now.

You have corrupt IDE drivers. You may need to re-install your motherboard chipset drivers. If that still does not resolve the issue then you may have to re-install Windows from scratch.

My pc recognises my dvdram as cdrom, after re installing.

Nothing to worry about, it all depends on what type of disc is in the drive at the time.

My pc recognises my dvdram as cdrom, after re installing.

The media you add is a DVD correct? If so, your DVD drive driver seem to not be working right. I would take the drive out and boot the pc without it in. Then shut it down and re-install the drive. If this doesnt fix the issue, try re-installing the drivers for your DVD drive. You might want to open device manager and uninstall the drivers before re-installing them. I had this happen to me once and this is how I got it working properly again.
