I have a nec 2500 dvd writer and i can only get it to read disks, so far i can not get it to write any kind of cd for me??? Do i need drivers, if so where can i get them from and how do i install them. I did not get an install disk with this item as i bought it 2nd hand off ebay!!!! if i dont need any drivers how do i configure it to write cds?? I have windows xp.
I`m using nero burn to write, the software tells me it has written the disk succesfully but the drive doesnt spin when the software says "writing". i`m using datasafe 80min cd-r 52x silver premium. i appriciate you helping me. John
Does the green disk activity light on the front of the drive come on 1. when you first put a blank disk in, and 2. when it's supposed to be writing to the disk? What speed is the program set to write to the disk at?
Ive just tried somthing else, i can write to a disk if i drag and drop into the drive folder, but i still cant write to one using nero, ive told nero what drive to use but it still aint giving me any joy!!! Help!!!!
Sounds to me like it's using InCD if you're dragging and dropping to copy stuff. This means your discs have been specially formatted for InCD which means Nero won't be able to use them like ordinary blank discs.
