I added an NEC ND-3520AW to my system as a Master drive (slave is a K-Hypermedia CD-RW drive). However Windows XP home has configured it as a DVD-ROM drive so I can’t burn to it. My Nero CD/DVD writing software doesn’t show this drive as a writer.
The following details might help in troubleshooting -
System config - AMD Athlon 2400XP with 512 MB RAM, K-Hypermedia 52X CD-RW drive, NEC ND-3520AW DVD-RW drive, WesternDigital 120 GB hard Drive, Via motherboard with support for IEEE-1394 and USB 2.0, ATI 9600 128MB video card.
Operating system - Windows XP Home (base, no service packs installed).
When I look at the driver details for the ND-3520AW, I see the following four files - cdrom.sys, redbook.sys, imapi.sys, storprop.dll. These are the same files set up for the K-Hypermedia CD-RW drive also (which works fine BTW).
Jumper settings are correct - ND-3520AW is set up as Master and K-Hypermedia is set up as slave on the secondary IDE port.
Any suggestions on how to update my driver so that the DVD-RW will be detected correctly and can be used for burning DVDs? Thanks in advance for all suggestions.
