First post and all- please be gentle! Anyways, onto my problem, hope you can help.
I bought a new DVD-RW drive (ND-35xx series) to replace my old DVD ROM drive, and now Windows XP seems convinced it’s a DVD drive, rather than what it should be. In the device manager it is identified as a cd-rom drive for some reason, and Nero 5.5 doesn’t even detect it (incidentally for some reason in the add/remove programs dialog the button to uninstall nero doesn’t even come up either…).
I have tried re-installing the drive, swapping the jumper settings between master and slave for both the existing cd-rw and dvd-rw, and took a look at the registry to see if there is anything to edit, which there isn’t. Oddly enough when I put in a blank dvd-rw disc it briefly comes up on My Computer as a dvd-rw drive, and then switches back to cd-rom. Does anyone have any suggestions?
