I have a NEC ND-3520A dvd-burner and this is my situation:
I have run Vista on my computer for about a month, and everything was working fine. Yesterday, I installed my new hardware (motherboard, CPU and RAM). Subsequently I turned on my computer and everything was fine, except for one thing: Windows couldn't find my dvd-drive.
Well, I installed a new driver and then the dvd-drive showed up in "my computer" as F: as it did before. I opened F:, it told me I had to insert a disc and the dvd-drive was automaticly ejected (physically). Everything back as normal I thought. I had obviously plugged the dvd-drive correctly - there was contact between the drive and the computer.
Suddenly, a minute later, the F: disappeared from "my computer". I couldn't in any way read the disc inside the drive. Because of my hardware changes I want to reinstall Vista, and therefore I tried to boot from the dvd-drive with the Vista cd inside. Actually, it booted from the cd and started the Windows installation. I chose languages etc and everything seemed fine. But suddenly a warning tells me that the computer couldn't find a properly working driver for the dvd-drive. I had to quit the installation and here I am.
I didn't have any trouble with this driver before installing the new hardware. Is this really a driver problem? I have tried installing new drivers and firmware, but I always get the message "Target NEC ND-3520A is not found correctly".
Can someone please help me? I consider myself a newbie and english is not my first language, so please explain after that. Thanks.
