Sup? Hope y'all can help. I bought a NEC ND-3520A and installed it into my primary PC. It read/wrote ridata ritek dvd+rs without a hitch.
I then decided to pop it into another PC and it worked fine with that one as well. I slaved a hdd on the primary channel with the ND-3520A still intact. This was when the problem manifested. All of a sudden for some strange reason it wasn't able to read the ridata ritek dvd+rs anymore. It recognizes the fact that there's a dvd/cd in the drive, but it won't read it. It always shows 0 bytes for used and free space. I reinstalled it back into the primary PC figurin it would read'em then. Well, I was wrong. The same thing happens.
When there's no media in the drive, it shows as 'DVD-RW Drive'. When I insert the dvd+r it switches to 'CD-Drive' and the aforementioned happens. It also switches to 'CD Drive' when I insert a CD-R, but it's recognized as such and shows 702 MB used and free. So no issues with CD-Rs.
I uninstalled the secondary channel in device manager and rebooted, in addition to makin sure DMA was enabled. After all that it still wouldn't read'em.
My hope is startin to wane and I'm limited as far as what else to try is concerned. Does anyone have any ideas what else I can do to try and make it read the dvd+rs like it once did? 'preciate any input, thanx.
