Sony DW-D22A and Nero 5.5

Just bought a Sony DW-D22A to use as a backup device.

PC is an AMD Athlon 1200mhz, with 640MB of RAM, running Windows XP Pro Service Pack 2.

Windows XP recognises the DVD RW drive, using the following description in properties;

Device Type: DVD/CD-ROM drives
Manufacturer: (Standard CD-ROM drives)
Location: Location 0 (0)
The device is working properly

Driver Provider: Microsoft
Driver Date: 01/07/2001
Driver Version: 5.1.2535.0
Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows Publisher

How can I get this device to work as a DVD RW?

How can I get it recognised in Nero?

Any other comments or ideas?

Any help would be much appreciated.


Update nero to the latest version.

Already updated version 5.5 to the latest.

Does that mean I’ve got to waste another 40euros?

There are OEM versions of Nero 6.3 available for less than $10. Look around in the Hot Deals forums (fatwallet, techbargains, etc).

Many thanks all.

Couldn’t get to the supported hardware link at Nero, until today, and it’s a version 6 drive, so the software has been ordered.

Once again, many thanks for all your help.
