Default dvd drives won't rec. dvd's

Default CD-RW/DVD-RW Not Playing DVDs
I have two combo drives neither of them are reading DVDs, just CDs.

I've searched the posts here, but none have solved my problem. I did notice [URL="***********"]this topic, however, which stated something interesting:

This seems to be my problem. Whenever I go to My Computer and click on both drives, it only says "CD Drive" below the title.

I've tried removing the drives in Device Manager and having Windows re-install the hardware, but that didn't work. Both drives used to read DVDs fine, but now neither will.
Does anyone know how to ""Turn on the service that reads the drive specs?
