Question about NEC ND-3550A DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

My desktop is not playing cd or dvd's.

I have a desktop and all of a sudden the dvd and cd wont play. I checked in device manager under disk drives and I think I dont see anything for dvd or cd driver assigned to the nec dvd_rw nd 3550a and nec _rw-3550a cd rom. What do I do to get the drivers corrected? I tried having the microsoft fixit software resolve the problem with no results. This is frustrating. Also under disk drives there are only generic usb devices along with wdc wd2500jb-00fua0

I have an HP pavilion slimline s3600f desktop pc and the optical disk drive doesn't seem to be reading cd's or DVD's.


Check the Device Manager to make sure that the OS does not have any issues with the device. If there is an exclamation point ( ! ), then Windows has issue with it. If there is an " ! " then right-click on the device and select update driver.

If the drive shows in My Computer, right-click on the drive and select "eject" from the list. This will verify that the OS is talking to the device.

Check your BIOS settings to make sure that it appears in the BIOS and is not disabled.

Also, Microsoft recently released an update to disable Auto-Play on CD/DVD drives. If Auto-Play isn't working (due to this update), then put a music/movie cd/dvd into the drive and open Windows Media player and try to play the disc through there.

The drive may not be "broken" it just may be that auto-play has been turned off by Microsoft.

How can I tell if my comuter has a DVD/CD drive or just a CD drive?


Normally, the front edge of the Drive tray will indicate CD, CD-RW, DVD or DVD-RW.

You can also check in Device Manager inside Windows (Press the Windows Flag Key+Pause Key, Hardware Tab, Device Manager button) Click the + next to DVD/CD-ROM Drives, and see what model drive is listed. If DVD isn't part of the drive model, it is a CD drive only.
