I’ve been finding that the Optiarc AD-5540A which came in a (UK spec) Dell Inspiron 9400 laptop is not recognised at all in Nero Burning Rom, my preferred burning software.
The problem originally presented itself when I first installed an older version (220.127.116.11) which was sufficient on my desktop PC. The drive was running RPC-2 firmware 1.02C.
I upgraded the firmware to RPC-1 1.02C from Liggy & Dee (thanks!), and then Nero to 18.104.22.168 using the micro installer. The drive is still not displayed in the Recorders list.
Has this problem been seen before, and can someone offer a solution? :o
