Hi Peeps… noob on here, thought I could steal some knowledge from some of you.
Just got the NEC ND-4500A (master) and also have an MSI Combo MS-8452M (Slave).
When I try and copy on the fly with Nero 6, 1click DVD copy or DVD Clone the software shows my NEC as a CD-RW. Its fine when the Blank DVD-R or DVD+R is in the NEC drive its shows the destination drive as “NEC 4550A DVD” then when I put the disc I’d like to copy in the MSI drive and close the drawer its changes the destination drive to “NEC 4550A CD/RW”.
I’ve formatted my system drive and re-installed Windows XP Home (was time for a format anyway) and I’m still having the same problem. I can copy fine if I write to an image file which would suggest a problem with the MSI Combo drive…
Any Suggestions? I suppose replacing the Combo with another DVD-ROM would be logical? I’ve tried putting the NEC on its own IDE channel and slaving the Combo to HDD and vice versa… with the same result.
Help! Its starting to give me piles now
