-DVD's do play-no problems at all
-In Device Manager it reads as _NEC DVD+RW ND 1100A
-Opened my case and the model reads the same as ^
-In MY COMPUTER->Empty Drive reads DVD/CD-RW
-Burning CD-R's I get all the way to the end then get an "unable to complete" error (possibly wrong format, laptop uses CD-R, this is a CD+RW so that may be the cause for the CD issue)
-DVD burn doesn't work at all- I try to use the send to E: function and the files appear in a ready to burn window. Load a DVD-R and the files disappear. Same happens if the DVD-R is in the drive to start. Try to send to E: and the files never appear.
I've tried re-installing drivers and no luck. Tried new firmware, but the firmware from _NEC does not want to recognize the drive.
Looking for any ideas to get this drive working. I had been using my laptop to burn my files to a CD to backup my PC, but the power jack gave out on me. I'd like to be able to dump all the excess but necessary info from my PC as my hard drive is at about 90% capacity. I need to free up space without losing essential files. (Lots of graphic design stuff taking up LOTS of room!!!)
Much love to anyone that can help dig up a fix to this thing!!
