DVD and CD Show this

Hi Guys

Sorry but i can't add pic to explain this better when i put blank DVD/CD in my DVD -&+ writer the drive properties show Type CD Drive and file system as RAW and states there is no free space and no used space, when there is no disc in the drive the machine regonise the drive as DVD this is the same on 2 machines one using XP Home 1 XP PRO

Cheers in advance for help

That is correct as there is nothing on them yet

Soprry its not correct! when i have entered a cd/dvd disc into the machine it would advise me how much space is used and avaliable so if what your saying is correct since when has this happend

unfotunately it is correct.If you want info on the disk use burning software such as nero.

Under Windows XP,This is what my DVD Writer properties are:-

For my DVD writer, without a blank disk in it, it is labelled as a DVD/CD RW device, File system unknown.

With a blank DVD inserted into the drive it states that the drive is a CD drive, File system RAW.

This is exactly as yours - This is correct, it functions correctly. You dont actually say why this is a problem?!
