Windows XP Home won't recognize NEC ND-2500
Posted on 2004-08-17
Hi, newby here with a very frustrating problem. I just bought and installed an OEM NEC ND-2500a dual-format DVD recorder. After getting it mounted, Windows recognized it at startup and attemted to install. Problem is it recognizes it as a CD-ROM only. In the Device Manager it shows as an unknown device. I can read CD and DVD media, but when I try to write to either the system can't find a recording device.
I can't find a driver for this anywhere, but I understand from other boards that I shouldn't need one. I attempted to update the firmware, but when I try to usethe flashing utilities they say the drive cannot be found. I had an ND-1100a installed before and it worked just fine. I'm at the end of my rope! Any help would be appreciated. Please let me know if you need information on the system and I'll post what I can. Thanks in advance!
