dvd drive not recognised by some programs

  conrail 19:47 PM 05 Oct 11

using windows 7 home premium sp1 64 bit 4Gb ram, Optical Storage drive is DVD±RW (±R DL) / DVD-RAM. I have 2 video editing programs I use, magix movies edit pro which gives me options for text on each scene and is the primary program I use, worked well with vist home premium and serif movie plus x3, the pc I have is 1 week old. Both programs when it comes to burning to dvd don't recognise the dvd drive, windows movie maker does and also ashampoo burning studio. how can I make the drive appear in these 2 programs, I did when 1st trying see that there is a missing dll but the message only appeared once and disappeared very quickly, all help and advice gratefully received because all movies are of my granddaughter
