  • CD / DVD Drive Mystery

    Hi, I've got a NEC DVD RW ND-2500A rewriter which has happily copied all cds and dvds I've thrown at it. But, it has stopped recognising DVDs, classes them as CDs. I have tried different DVD manufactures etc. but it does it with all of them. Along with that the icon has gone in the drive list and when you insert a cd or dvd it brings the drive up as the MMC/SD card drive. Tried the manufacturer and got nowhere. Ani ideas very gratefully recieved, thanks.

    Try using a CD/DVD cleaning kit, which will clean the lens of your drive internally. Otherwise, return the drive to where you bought it from for a replacement.

      Another post from awhile back....

      Another possibility is to check for firmware updates on the drive as well as driver updates for the motherboard.
      Intel Pentium Dual Core 2.6 GHz
      6GB RAM
      500 GB HDD
      Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 with 128MB dedicated memory
