I'm new to DVD burning. My laptop doesn't seem to recognize my dvd burner - NEC USB2.0 DVDRCDRW NEC 8X DVD-R/RW DVD+R/RW 32X16 CDRW
I'm using XP. I try to burn a dvd but the time its showing to burn it just keeps increasing (to several hundred hours) and it seems like its not working - although when I pull out the dvd I see that it has written about 1/4 of an inch.
Additionally, under "My Computer" , it just shows up as a CD drive. I can view CDs and DVDs from it, but I cannot burn CDs or burn DVDs to it. I do have a DVD - CDRW built into my ProStar laptop also. When I use Nero to try burning a CD to the new NEC drive, it doesn't seem to see the new drive, just sees Image Recorder (CD-R/RW) and E:Toshiba DVD ROM SD-R2212 [CD-R/RW] - not sure what that image recorder actually is.
For burning dvds I am using CopyToDVD, shrink 3.1 etc... Anyone have any insight on how to get the NEC USB 2.0 drive working?
Any help much appreciated.
