I just installed an NEC ND 1000 x2.4 DVD+R writer into the machine and i need to download the drivers for it. I have looked on the site but i can't see anywhere (//nec.com or //nec.co.uk) thats in English. Could someone help??
You shouldn't need a driver for Windows to detect it. Check ide connection, power connection, and jumper settings again. Go into BIOS and see if BIOS detects it. If BIOS detects it but Windows doesn't, then it's Windows problem.
What CD/DVD burning software did you have and did you recently uninstall burning software and reinstall something new?
