Question about NEC ND-3550A-KIT DVD±RW Burner
Hello, i have a problem with my dvd drive and would appreciate some help. I have a NEC 3550A Burner and it won't read any disks. When I go into my properties from my computer, it says the drive is working properly. When I insert a disk into the drive, it tries to read it for a bit, then a pop up appears that tells me to insert a disk into the drive. I have tried multiple disks with different formats, but the outcome is all the same. Thanks for your help.
This has been a very common problem with the NEC 3550 drive. I've had the problem for over 6 months and basically had to stop using the drive in DVD mode. I've searched the web and no one had a "Solid" answer. The suspicision is that Windows or a virus updates a file in the registry and this somehow breaks the NEC DVD function plus a couple of other things. My system main disk got an error and would not boot Windows. A file in the Registry was destroyed and would lot even repair. I had to do a clean install of Windows plus all my software. Once this was done, all my original function of the NEC 3550a returned to top quality. I think I have proven this fixes the problem.

One easy test to do is use a bootable cd and boot from cd instead of windows. if it boots its an issue in windows. if it don't boot its likely bad hardware.. i have exact same model drive for over a year
a good boot cd easy to get is a memory tester www.memtest.org the zip file has an iso i burn with imgburn.com tool
