I am new to this forum, I stumbled here via google and hopefully you will be able to help me. I am new to all the terms here so please explain so I can understand what to do.
My newlybought, nec nd-3550a version 1.5 , drive is acting strange. When I first bought it I burned a normal cd with it and it worked. But when I tried to burn a dvd, the drive recognises the disc as a cd with 0 bytes free space. And I cant burn. The disc was a Fujifilm dvd+R 8x. I used both nero and alcohol 120%. So I went and bought a new disc a TDK DVD-RW 4X Singlesided. But the same happened with it. I tried reinstalling windows, because I thought that maybe it was software related.
After the reinstallation I can now write the TDK disc, but still not the Fujifilm. I flashed the drive to 1.6 in hope that it would solve my problems, but it got worse and now I cant read or write both the discs. I have another dvd drive which can read the discs.
Please help me.
