Issues with Nec 3520A

I recnetly got a new comp and moved a working nec 3520a over. Now it is acting all goofy, it plays DVD’s and CD’s but messes up with blank DVD’s It goes from thinking it is a dvd -rw to a cd drive. I am using the same media I used before from the same spindle. I have the most recent firmware, and it is set as the slave just like the last comp. I tried unistalling then reinstalling it with no luck.

No DVD + R

Insert DVD + R

just making sure I am subscribed to this post.

@ ajp,

The phenomena you are experiencing is not unusual.

My NEC ND-3500AG installed in a WinXP system and my NEC ND-2510A installed in a Win2000 system does exactly the same thing when I install blank DVD media in the drive.

rest assured, ur drive is fine
happens to me as well, on my nec 3520a
as long as burning programs recognize that there is a blank disc in there that can be written to, i don’t think you should spend too much time worrying about this.

Very old problem and, agreed, nothing to worry about. Just windows playing stupid.

Ok if it isnt a deal then thanks.
