Nec nd 3500 not recognized as dvd drive in XP

I just installed the nec 3500. Windows initially recognized it as a dvd drive. After
installing Nero 6 however, windows only recognizes it as a cd drive. I’ve tried burning a dvd in both easy cd creator and nero, and both programs tell me that they find no dvd drive. Please help. :sad:

Have you tried uninstalling the drive in device manager and rebooting? you might want to uninstall the IDE channel it is on as well and let windows reinstall it when you reboot.

I have the same exact problem. Is your NEC 3500 burner an external dvd drive. I installed nero 6 and whenver I try to burn something it says no disk in drive.
