Hello to all,
First off I'm a newbie when it comes to DVD burning so I may sound like an idiot but I'll do my best.
I bought a NEC ND-3520A 16x DVD burner from newegg. The burner came yesterday bare. (No software/drivers/etc.. although in doing some reading online I've seen similar instances where this has occured and the drive will still work fine.) I stuck it into my Windows XP SP1 machine and it recognizes it just fine as an NEC 3520A burner.
The problem I'm having is that I cannot get any software to recognize it. I've tried using Nero 188.8.131.52, Nero 184.108.40.206, Adaptec CD-DVD Creator 5 and NTI CD-DVD Maker 5.. none of these programs will recognize the burner. I've also flashed the drive with the latest firmware just to make sure it is up to date at this link: http://www.micheldeboer.nl/firmware/3520_104_6st.zip
Does anyone have any other suggestions as to what's going on? I am leaning towards a software issue since Windows XP is picking up my drive perfectly fine but can't figure it out. Maybe I'm not using the right software? Any information/help would be greatly appreciated!
