First, ignore this thread if you’re fatigued or impatient cuz this will be a long(winded) post.
I bought a dvd-burner with a product model as mentioned above. (4163B). Being a PC idiot, i asked the man at the shop to install the burning software, which is a nero product, for me. With that, i was able to burn data onto a blank dvd, cd, virtually anything onto a disc media with this dvd burner.
Then, the worst happened.
Deleted a few startup files by mistake, screwed XP, and reformatted the whole PC.
I immediately reinstalled my burning software, which is nero express 188.8.131.52 and prayed to god that this optical drive would work. My Prayers were 1/2 answered.
Now, this drive can only READ, but can’t WRITE. I was like
A few things to note.
1- I was burning data DVDs with nero startsmart. but i realized that it isn’t on the installation disc supplied. Am i seeing things?
2- Haven’t tried burning a data CD. I lost hope for that.
3- Hasn’t installed any plugins, firmware, etcetc
So now, any1 knows how to retrieve my (previous) burning software, which is NeroStartSmart, when it’s not even on my software installation disc supplied? I’ve got plenty of data to burn, and now, i can only read, but not write DVD/CD. :a
Also, after reformatting, do i need to reinstall any plugins, firmware things?
oh yea running on this machine.
