Just installed my new NEC 3520A burner. Recognized by CMOS as Master on 2 and windows but the drive letters are reversed.
Here is the sequence of installation. Old CD-burner was in slave position and DVD ROM was in Master position. Decided to install the new NEC in the Master position so left the jumper on the first 2 pins. Changed the DVD-ROM jumper to the middle 2 pins, slave.
Booted up and Windows recognized both drives but as I said the drive positions were reversed from what I expected. My disc drives are H and I so the new NEC was I and the old DVD was H:. I checked the device drivers and said I had the latest. I shut down and flushed my CMOS and rebooted. The CMOS read OK, NEC in master position on 2 and the DVD-ROM in slave on 2.
Reset everthing in CMOS and saved and booted. Opened Explorer when restarted and the drive letters are still reversed. Both drives seemed to be working OK, at least they read a photo disc. The access light lights up on the drive that I have a disc in. Haven’t tried a burn yet.
What’s going on here and how do I get the drive letters assigned correctly? Seems like there is a way to change drive letter assignments but darn if I remember where. Not in the device driver.
