Hey guys, been to other forums and they were not really able to help me
however this places seems to have lotsa experts in NEC drives so i hope some one can help me with my problem.
Hi there just got a new XPS 1210 and
basically after uninstalling lots of the irrelevant software
and installing my neccessary programmes i have come to realise
tat my DVD-RW Drive is not working properly (pls note i do not know if it was working befoe i removed all the software as i did not try burning anything at that time).
IT can read CDs and DVDs fine (i have done multiple installs with DVD and CD format discs already)… however Nero cant detect it
the default roxio sonic software also cant see the drive. There are several other applications that came with the laptop such as back up tools and DVD Video creators which use the drive as well and they all cant see it.
The only way i am even able to get it to burn at all is by using the normal WINDOWS explorer drag and drop into the DVD-ROM, tats the only way it work , and this only works for CDs i have basically not been able to burn a DVD yet in form what so ever…
here are a couple of screen shots from the device
anyone care to give me a hand as to how i can solve this
