Product bought May 2005.
Initially needed to insert/re-insert disks several times before contents could be read/seen in Win Explorer. Found this a pain. You would go thro' complex authoring setup (say in Nero), then when you are ready to burn - you find Nero/Windows does not recognise that a CD/DVD is present!
In last month (July 2005), this NEC unit has given up recognising CDs/DVDs altogether! In fact it now sometimes clicks (approx once per 2 seconds) when disk inserted!!
No major changes have happened to my XP-SP1 since installation when it did at least work. (a little). Device manager reports that no driver update has affected this drive.
ANY SUGGESTIONS FROM ANYONE ON HOW TO RESOLVE THIS?
Unit was bought on net.
Am new to CD drives, so apologize in advance if solution blindingly obvious to the initiated - but would still appreciate the solution! Many thanks.
