    show 'blank media' message when insert blank dvd (Win XP SP2)

    I don't know how to display the message when a blank cd/dvd is inserted. I accidentally checked "take this action every time"....and don't know how to display it again. I think something might be wrong with my drive, because I'll burn a DVD, and then when I put it in the dvd drive, (Same one that just burned it), it shows a blank CD, and changes the drives title in my computer from DVD/RW Drive (D) to CD Drive (D) <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15>

    did you try reinstalling the drivers for it? that sounds a bit funky... perhaps there are new drivers for it?

    Try holding down the SHIFT key when you insert the DVD.
