Sorry, not possible. (Reply to Karlsnooks)

Pity.

Here's what I've seen work, but is not a 100% cure for all cases:

Completely uninstall ALL programs you have for reading/writing to the cd/dvd unit. That's all except for anything from Microsoft.

I've found that especially Nero has been problematic and some of the clone dvd programs.

That is not practical, Karlsnooks. I prefer to keep it as a last resort, pending other suggestions. I don't have NERO or other DVD burn programs that I'm aware of. Thank you.

I thought you would feel that way about that approach.

Should I interpret that as a personal comment, or a sensible one?

Did you try what Roadrunner suggested, to uninstall the optical drive from Device Manger, then reboot and let Windows 7 rediscover it and reload the driver? That isn't exactly what he said but that's what he meant.

Also, open My Computer. Right click on the optical drive and select properties. Is there a Recording tab and are settings correct?

Properties for "DRD/RW Drive (E)" and "Removable Disk (F)" do not have recording tabs. Under Hardware, E has "CDDVDW TS-T633P SCSI CDRO Type-DVD/CD, and says "This device is working properly. It also has "Multiple Card Reader USB Device Type Disk Drive" and "ST375052 8AS SCSI Disk Device Type Disk Drive" and both of those say they are working properly. F has the same, except for "USB Device Type Disk Drive" instead of "CDDVW..." All of those say they're working properly.
I haven't tried what Roadrunner suggested. I'm not certain I know how. In the properties sections of the two drives are buttons to "Disable" or "Uninstall (Advanced)" the drive. Can I do it with these? If so, I'd really appreciate it if you would give me step-by-step instructions. (Don't think you'll be insulting my intelligence. I'm a very old dog trying to learn new tricks.)
