Question about Dell Dimension 1100 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I Firmware problem!!

I have a Dell Dimension 1100 and bought a ATAPI - DVD A DH20A4P DVD/RW and installed it into the Dell. Now it has 2 CD/DVD roms. One DVD/RW (ATAPI) and one CD/RW/DVD rom(stock for it). But when I am in windows (XP - Home Ed) and go under my computer it recognizes the drive as E:/ but only as E:/ DVD RAM and wont burn dvd's or recognize and dvd's in the drive and some cd's for that matter. But it does work like a regular CD drive most of the time. It has the driver install 9p59 firmware. Help please!!!! Going CRAZY!!!!
