DVD Burner

I built my PC some time ago. And I've had two dvd-rw's the first one died of
natural causes. The second on was performing just fine with all of the dvd
writing software I own. I was trying a new software to see whether it could
work without so much work. It didn't work out, but before I uninstalled it I
noticed that when I put a blank dvd into the drive XP treated it as a CD
only, not as a dvd. So I uninstalled the software still the same thing. I
replaced the drive, still the same responce. XP thinks the disk is a CD. So
the question is. Do I need to look on my XP Pro disk for the driver? Do I
need to hack the registry (if I knew what to look for)? Or is there a place I
can download a new driver? I did some serches on the MS web site, but got no
hits. Has some one out there seen this kind if issue that can help? Thanks in
advance.
