I recently bought a NEC ND-1000A to my new computer and so far it’s my only optical drive.
Initially reading from it worked fine (installing Windows (XP Pro), games etc.) but at some point while updating one thing or another (wish I knew what) it stopped working altogether.
After trying a million things I finally updated my IDE controller driver to nForce MCP2 (Iâ€™m using an nVidia nForce2 motherboard with the ND-1000A as a secondary master). This resulted in that Iâ€™m now able to play audio CDs and DVDs but NOT data CDâ€™s of any other kind. Nor am I able to burn anything, but that never worked in the first place either.
Has anyone had a similar problem?
How can it be possible to read audio CDs and DVDs but not data CDs (Iâ€™ve tried several different of both kinds)?
Does anyone know how to fix this?
Iâ€™ve updated all drivers I could find, but NEC claims no specific drivers from them are necessary (can’t find any to download either).
Any suggestions at all are welcome, this is driving me mad!!
