I've bought a batch of five TX DVD-RW but my DVD writer won't recognize them. The DVD writer is an ATAPI DVD W DH16W1P ATA with Window Vista SP2. Are there some known issues regarding compatibility?

Usually hardware device like the ones you have don't require additional drivers since these are actually plug-n-play enabled. They use generic system drivers to install successfully but you should manually check the Device Manager and see if there is a yellow sign on an item listed there. If there is one you should manually perform a driver update. If you are connected to the Internet, let Windows update the drivers automatically.

Hello Alex,
thanks for your answer.

According to the device manager, the DVD writer works fine, no yellow signs are shown.
I've performed a driver update, but the results are equal.
DVD's from other brands like Philips and Fuji are working without any problems.
The TX 4X-speed DVD-RW don't even work on an other device (Laptop, brand of writer unknown). There's the same reaction, No Recognition.
