    Default External dvd writer problem

    Hi

    I have two dvd writers.One is an external one

    When I plug the dvd writer in.Windows Xp detects everything and says its ready to use.I inserted a blank dvd and a window popped up.I cancelled that and open Nero Express but the program only shows my internet dvd writer and doesn't allow me to choose my external dvd writer.I've also tried a different program called nti cd-dvd maker and that was the same.It only showed my internal dvd writer.

    I tried plugging my dvd writer into another usb port but same things happen.

    Why isn't my external dvd writer isn't showing up in any burning program?

    i've tried restarting the computer also

    Possibility that the software you're using is some form of OEM software?

    Does it show up in My Computer?
    What about if you downloaded CDBurnerXP from http://www.cdburnerxp.se/ ?

    Dont know why it does show up on my computer but my computer is showing 4 drives

    The internal dvd writer drive is letter D

    The external one is drive E

    Then there's L and J

    It says DVD-RW (E),DVD-RW(D),CD-RW(L),CD-RW(J)

    I believe the E drive is the external dvd writer.When I click on it it says to insert a disc into the drive but there's already a disk in the drive

    Any software with the external DVD writer?

    Deepburner might be worth a look
