I'm running Windows 8.1 on a MacBook Pro (early 2011 15 inch) with the Boot Camp drivers installed. My DVD-R is identified in the Device Manager as a "MATSHITA DVD-R", and I want to burn an ISO file to a writeable DVD.

To try this I selected the "Burn Disk Image" menu item from the context menu in Explorer:

Win8 Context Menu

...and encountered this message: "A disc burner wasn't found. Make sure that a burner is installed properly..." etc.

A disc burner wasn't found

The devices function properly when the MacBook is running OS X.

How could I get this to work under Win8.1, though?
