Installed XP SP3 to my Dell 6000 and now NEC 6500a can't be found. Device manager says that the drivers are loaded by cannot find the hardward Code 41

see if its recognised in the Device Manager. Start/My computer/Control Panel/System/Device manager.
if so remove or uninstall the Drive.
Physically remove/eject the drive from the Computer. reboot then shutdown. re-insert the Drive. boot computer and see if it,s detected by the system or ( found new hardware Wizard )
re-install any drivers as requested. Installing SP3 shouldn,t do this. unless the drive was actually Virused Or failing already.

NEC ND-6500A Cant burn DVD-R

I figured out what was causing the problem with my NEC 6500A on my Dell laptop: The Sony Picture Motion Browser software that I was using to burn DVD's is only compatible up to Service Pack 2 of Windows XP. The day after I installed Service Pack 3, the software stopped burning DVD's. So I uninstalled Service Pack 3, rebooted, unistalled the Sony PMB software, rebooted and re-installed the Sony PMB software and I can now burn DVD's again. So check whether the software you're burning your DVD's with is compatible with whatever version of your operating system you're operating with. Hope this helps someone else!

I have encountered this problem numerous times and, while I'm not sure of the exact cause, the remedy that works 90% of the time for me is to create a 1:1 solution of isopropyl alcohol & distilled water and to GENTLY brush the laser with a cotton swab tipped with this solution.  Afterwards, use the other side of the swab to completely dry off the laser, ensuring that absolutely no cotton fibers are left behind.  Good luck!

NEC 6500A DVD Rw

I used to have a DVD/CDRW driver on my Sony Vaio and I had to replace it twice it died on me and I had to buy a new one every time the truth is that many things can go wrong for such small device so try this go to Download the firmware, if after that it still wont work your chances are that you have to buy a new one.

CD/DVD won't eject, won't play, Device Manager doesn't recognize.

If it's only 8 months old, then you have atleast 4 months left on your warranty. The problem will either be the ide controller channel or the dvd drive and firmware has faulted, the same fault probably happens when you have put a dvd in and it wont read or eject. Return to the place of purchase, where the drive should be replaced or the notebook exchanged.

NEC nd 6500a

Hi, I think that it's a firmware issue. If the unit is till covered by warranty, you may have to bring it back for replacement. When doing so, it may be to your advantage to bring the PC while it is still attached and blank CDs and DVDs just to demonstrate the particular failure and likewise to be able to test if and when it would be replaced. If for some reason, you would want to try DIY, please look over these sites that you may have an idea.𠓝 Hope this be of some help and pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.
