According the drive specs you posted that is a ROM (Read-Only-Memory) drive: it can only read a DVD and you cannot write to it. That is why no "write" drive is detected.


Also that Roxio program you have may not be compatible with Win10

On a 'net search I've found the PLDS DVD-ROM DH-16D5S,and DH-16D2S. All of them are DVD-ROM/CD-ROM drives.

There are some DH16D8S drives available in China, but I can't find more details yet.


-What sort of discs have you been able to burn with this one please?





Assorted computers in Windows XP, 7, and 10.
