im running windows xp pro and recently installed a nec dvd rewriter nd2500a and when i try to copy on dvd, xp only show it as a cd rewriter.
is there any drivers for it, ive looked at nec site and upgraded to the lastest firmware but no luck so is it something in xp that needs to be done ??

The reason I asked about the windows updates was because the pc that I used to have, if I reinstalled XP the dvd rewriter was seen as a dvd-rom until I had done all the nessesary windows updates. Then it was seen as a dvd-rw drive

have the same writer as you and same set up, but no problems. there is a update for this drive at svp but that only lets you use more media. it does say that this drive works at its best when set as master!
