Usually this means the computer saw that something was plugged into the USB port, but it doesn't know what device it is. It will require device drivers from NEC to recognize the drive. If your drive came with a driver CD, install these drivers. If the drive was working before, but now it's not, reinstall the drivers. If this does not fix the problem, then most likely either your drive is bad, or else your registry has become corrupted. Try another USB drive and see if your USB port is working, that is another possibility.

verify that the USB port is working, you may also try it on another machine to see if it works, you may have a corrupt driver for your usb port. If it works on another machine then uninstall and reinstall updated drivers for your usb ports. I hope this helps, Good luck.
CD/DVD drives do not run using conventional drivers, this is why you can't find any. They use class filter drivers. This problem is more likely caused by having missing or corrupt filter drivers.
This is easy to get around. Class Filter Drivers are found in your Motherboard/Chipset drivers. So all you should need to do, is identify your motherboad and chipset, go to their website, do a search for your board, download and install the most current drivers for your board/chipset.
Once this is done, restart your system, if it hasn't done so already, and see if the drive is now recognised.
If the above doesn't work first time, it may be an idea to uninstall your media and burning software, then try the above steps, before re-installing the media and burning software.
I picked that drive up at a Goodwill store a few years ago and haven't gotten around to trying to use it until now. Do a search for '4406eu' at driverguide.com. I found the driver with instructions there.
You can do that and it should take care of your problem. Most likely somehow or another (can happen with different software titles[for burning]) your upper and lower filters in the registry became corrupted and this is why your CD/DVD drive are not working properly. With the Media Card Reader, usually if you uninstall the USB Root hub in device manager (which it is on) there will be a few of them. Let the computer re-install the driver it will take care of this issue.
