Don't want to be a "noob" but I can't find any thread that speaks of my exact problem...only slightly similar. I can copy and backup DVD-r fine with 1 Click DVD Copy, but when I try to use either Nero or Easy Media Creator to burn a CDR my computer (XP Pro) freezes and I have to reset. Also, the drive will not read my CD's that I have previously burned...or any CD or DVD for that matter. I installed the NEC two days ago with the same jumper settings as the Plextor CD Burner that I had been using. I've done two restores in order to switch DVD burning programs so I don't have both installed at the same time. Help! I really want to use the CD burner aspect of the new drive but I'm at a total loss at this point.
