I purchased two parts (NEC ND-3550A and external enclosure from Newegg a week ago.
I got them a couple of days ago and put the burner into the enclosure and hooked it up on the laptop through USB 2.0 and it was recognized as a DVD-RW Drive immediately. However, it is refusing to read any disc such as DVD-R, CD-RW, etc. I’ve been trying to find a solution for the last few days. I even looked through a lot of posts on this website.
I’ll just go ahead and post everything that might help.
My laptop is a HP
AMD Athlon XP2200+
1.7GHz, 704MB of RAM
The NEC ND-3550A’s jumper is on the master. Its firmware is 1.06 (Current verison so far).
