i didnt know where to post this really i have a NEC DVD_RW ND-3520A with updated firmware i only nodiced today when i tryed to burn a movie.
i placed blank dvd-r disk in the drive and it hangs for a few seconds then changes the icon for the drive from dvd-rw drive to cd drive but the disk reads dvd-r with zero free space on it ive tried several disks nothing worked always same resultes i take disk out it goes back to dvd-rw drive put one in changes to cd drive also it plays burnt cds and dvd just fine.
i may get lost here soon information but ntools says my firmware is 3.04 i belive and i have both my ide channels set for DMA and auto if possable.
i used google but only found other people with the same problem and they have diffrent drives.
EDIT: If this needs to be moved sorry i didnt post here because i think you guys are smarter its just this issue seems to be a problem that ocures with winxp sp2 and any dvd drive -.- and im at a loss
