I pulled a DVD Reader from another box and substituted it for the DVD 
Writer I had installed. The reader works as expected, an icon pops up on 
the desktop when a disk is inserted.

So as you suggested it is a defective unit. I suppose I should have 
suspected that first but I thought all I had were in working condition. 
I will order a replacement, they are inexpensive from what I see advertised.

Thanks for the help.
