I am getting really mad with my 3540A drive! :a
(As previously reported... ):
I had some datawrite DL discs that were not recognised, tried all firmwares to no avail, so then ordered the verbatims DLs - THE ones to buy, right?
The problem is still the same :doh: . When I put one of the DL dvds into the drive, in windows explorer, the drive description changes from saying DVD drive to saying CD drive. Nero disc info recognises the disc as a blank CD. What gives? The Bios and device manager recognise the drive as it should be, with no reported problems.
This seems to be key perhaps? The fact that even explorer tells me it is a blank CD rather than DVD?
This is really frustrating, any ideas...?
If I was to return the drive, should I ask for a different one next time, all I read on this forum with the NEC is problems, problems, problems! :sad:
(things I have tried so far:
remove other CD drive
plug dvd drive into primary IDE socket rather than secondary
