I have a MicroAdvantage superdrive (DVD+RW and DVD-RW). When I connect it to my ibm x31 notebook with XP operating system, it shows as DVD-RW Drive, but when I insert any empty dvd+r, dvd-r disk, it will change to CD Drive. And the Roxio dvd recording software cannot recognize it either. Can anyone help me??? THANKS
It doesn’t matter what Windows displays as the type.
I know, but none of the dvd recording software can recognize it and record it. So basically, I cannot use it.
I’m having the same problem with my NEC ND-3500. I’m using it in an external case USB2.0 and connect to my laptop via a pcmcia USB2.0 card.
I haven’t been able to burn a single dvd because of this.
Is your DVD firmware/driver updated ? get the latest A070 from Microadvantage.net and see if that helps
im having same problem with my NEC-6650a on my Laptop.
DVDRW—> insert DVD-R---->shows up as CD DRIVE (still recon its a dvd-r inside, but with no data. RAW format, 0 used space, 0 free space…)
