Why cannot my new Multi DVDrw drive read DVD's or CD's Nero can see a blank disc in drive and knows what type it is when I load one

Had a new dvdrw drive that wouldn't read any discs at all.Took it back and exchanged it which worked perfectly.

Drivers?

Windows loads Read Drivers, Write Drivers are loaded by Nero

yes.

I think it must be a Duff Drive, I could do a Flash Update but why should I take the risk with a new drive!

PS this drive is mounted in a Multi Boot 98se XP computer

As you know it's rarely a driver or firmware when a drive won't read as they are loaded by windows.
If pos take it back for a refund.
