[qanda]This thread is about the NEC ND-5500A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Have replaced the slimline drive in my HP 510 laptop with an optiarc NEC 5590A. The laptop will just not recognize it at all. I have upgraded the laptop firmware and spoke with HP and NEC. I’ve deleted the microsoft reg keys to try and make it appear but it does not. In device manager and explorer I cannot see this drive at all. Liggy and Dee talk of similar issues with slimline drives on other models where there are issues with Master\Slave selection. I have tried to use Drive convert but even that does not recognize this Drive. Help I dont really want to send this drive back and certainly don’t want to install a horrible TSL632 that lasted just past 12 months !
Been in the hp firmware but not a lot to play with ?
