Windows 7: W7 64bit + XP Mode - DVD RW only recognised as DVD ROM

W7 64bit + XP Mode - DVD RW only recognised as DVD ROM

Hi,

Sorry if this has already been dealt with but I can not track down any posts on this topic.

Specifically, my Optical Drive is recognised in XP Mode but only to read data and not to write. Is this a limitation within XP Mode or is there likely to be some adjustment needed to my setup?

The full capability of the drive is recognised on the host computer and Nero burning software has been installed within the virtual environment.

Any thoughts / guidance would be appreciated.

Peter

From the number of viewings of this post there still seems to be some interest in the topic.
Regrettably further research has uncovered the answer for me and I post the item that contains the answer in case it saves time for others in the future:
