The other Fred

"no Drive Detected"

Question

In Vista Windows Explorer, My DVD RW drive shows up as two drives.

 

One is called:

DVD RW Drive (E:)

 

The other is called:

HD DVD-ROM Drive (G:)

 

I also have a drive called "RECOVERY (D:)". I'm not sure what that is. I dont know if its a partition on the C: drive or what.

 

I tried dragging a 1 gigabite+ ISO file to the E: drive in explorer and it copies the ISO file to the blank DVD just fine. (not what I wanted, but that's what it did.)

 

But when I want to use Roxio Creator 9 to burn the DVD, It doesn't get past "NO DRIVE DETECTED".

 

What is going on? What should I do?

I suspect this is a hidden partition that came with your system to be used if you have to reinitialize your system (i.e., C: drive) and go back to the factory configuration. As a technicality, it is not on your C: drive (that's a logical entity) but is on the same hard drive as the C: drive.
