Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
WinXP Home, 2.67GHz Pentium 4 , 1GB 266MHZ SDRAM
NEC CD RW NR 9200A shows up in Device Manager. Properties says it is enabled & functioning properly. However, when I place a CD or DVD in it, the device tries to read the media for a minute or more, but never recognizes the disc in drive, so it does not play or write to disc.
Driver Version: 5.1.2535.0
I assumed it may be the driver are out of date or corrupted, so I downloaded the latest drivers listed : NECNR92V203 and placed them in a new folder. I tried to update drivers in Device Manager by locating the folder where the above file is located, but I cant get the drivers file to open or install.
I tried viewing the "README.txt" file included with NECNR92V203 and its in Japanese, so I cant read it.
This is not a driver issue but to make sure, uninstall it from device manager and reboot. The computer will automatically find it and install them again.
The issue is with the hardware itself; the drive will need to be replaced and they can be had for under $25 for a DVD burner which will do more than what the one you have now will.

I suggest that there is simply dust on the lens. Spray inside the drive with some compressed air, like that in a can found at computer stores. If that does not solve the problem you can try cleaning the lens with a long Q-tip and some rubbing alcohol. If it still does not work I would replace the drive.
