I recently purchased a ND-3550 from dabs.com
I already had a CD-RW installed, so I simply removed that and replaced it with the 3550, like for like, same data cable and power socket, however, when I restarted the machine, it got as far as the Windows XP startup with the blue “progress bar” at the bottom, then froze (after about 8 cycles of the progress bar). I’ve rechecked all the connections are secure and rebooted several times, but it always freezes at the same point.
I have no manual, software or drivers (and I believe they aren’t necessary ?) with the drive, and as the computer won’t start, have no way of determining what firmware version it is.
Any tips please folks ?
Thanks in advance.
