Just bought an NEC 3500AG (my first dvdr) and installed it as the slave in the following system.
XP Home sp2
I had to reinstall the OS anyway so I installed the new burner when I installed Windows. When installing the OS, it was able to recognise the new burner correctly. It shows up correctly in the hardware manager.
When I tried to burn a CDR it worked flawlessly. However, when I tried to burn a dvd it ran into problems. My test is to simply drag files through windows explorer into the E drive. However, it wouldn't allow me to drag files into this drive like I can with a CDR. It said "Problem Copying" and quit.
I read this forum thouroughly. I tried:
swapping the drive from master to slave
uninstalling the primary and secondary IDE channels
I tried 2 different types of media(Teon(mag E01) and a Maxel type)
I also downloaded DVD Identifier and it WAS able to recognise the type of DVD I had loaded in the drive.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance
