I could not find another thread addressing this topic if you know of a similar topic let me know.
So my 3550 drive will not recognize any DVD media that I put into the drive. I have tried both from windows and during boot using a bootable DVD. I've gone through what I believe are all the steps in the NEC troubleshooting guide.
My drive does recognize CDs and will boot from CDs. When I put in a DVD it usually gives me the error message disc not found. It won't recognize commercial DVDs or blanks or burned DVDs.
I was running Nero 18.104.22.168, but I uninstalled it and pretty much every other type of burning software just in case it was a software problem.
I originally flashed the Liggy and Dee 1.Y5 firmware, but reverted back to the 1.05 from NEC. I've checked all sorts of hardware things and have made sure I'm using the basic microsoft drivers.
If you have any other suggestions or think the drive is dead, please let me know
Thanks for the help
