Nec Dvd + Rw Nd-1100a 10fd

Hi, I am not very computer savy, especially with the hardware stuff. I have a Dell PC and an NEC DVD writer, I have never had any problem with it before but recently I am experiencing a problem. The DVD writer is not recognizing the blank media I put in it. ANy thoughts?

Hi oneeyedjack1952,
your drive is very old and:

  • probably “died”
  • does not support the new media, so even if it still work, it cannot handle the new 16x DVDs
    So it is time to buy a new drive. :bigsmile::wink:

What kind of media are you trying to use. The NEC-1100 is an ancient and outdated drive and does only 4x max speed. You’d be better off investing in a modern 20x drive.
