I've just purchased an NEC 3520a DVD writer and I'm having trouble gettin it workin.
It appears fine in CMOS (BIOS) and XP recognises fine (although it does only say 'CD-Rom device' next to its name) and it seems to recognise that a CD has been inserted - problem is anything i put only pops up as 'Blank CD'.
I'm running it on the same IDE cable as an older DVD drive, which seemed to be fine with my old writer - the NEC is set to master and the old drive to slave - the older drive works fine.
Where am I going wrong? Can you please help me?!
