Default Sony DVD burner and Plextor CD-R burner will read data but will not burn discs.

sponsored links

I am new to this forum and need help from anyone who is knowledgable.
I have an internal Plextor 16/10/40 CD burner and a Sony DRU-710A DVD burner both of which used to work perfectly.
Recently I realized I could not burn discs on both drives.
They can both read data off previously burned discs, fine.
I use Windows 2000 Professional. My computer seems to be working fine.
Both drives are shown in 'My Computer'. (E and F)
It was suggested that I delete both devices under 'device manager' and re-boot the system.
I did this, and Win 2000 recognized New Hardware Devices by name for both. Under 'properties' both are said to be working correctly.
Still I cannot burn on BOTH these devices, only read data.
When I insert blank recordable discs in both, the light is on a long time and I get the message 'Please insert disc into Drive E or F'. Obviously the drive cannot recognize the unrecorded media.
The media is good, same batch from previously burned discs.
I know that both drives could not have suddenly malfunctioned at the same time.
Could I have lost, or corrupted any Win files or drivers needed for both Drives to work properly?
Please, someone help.
