I bought 2nd hand NEC

since you have been inside your computer and moving leads about some of these may be old and deteriotaed then any movement might

(crack break the circuit even if its slight)

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive)) make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

I have a NEC DVD RW ND-3530a and my windows xp

Remove the drive from your computer, and temporarily connect it to another desktop computer.
If it still does not work, then it's time to responsibly recycle it, and spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

After inserting the cds,nothing happens bar a

Does the drawer open and close, when you push the button.
If so, you are getting electrical power to the drive.
If not, check that power-cable is still connected to the back of the drive.

If you don't hear the drive "spin" the CD, something is wrong with the hardware -- either it's not detecting that a CD is in the tray, or the motor that spins the CD has died.

Either way, spend $40 and buy a replacement CD/DVD-writer.
Remove the old one, and take it to a computer-store,
so that they can match the power and data connectors on the old drive with the power and data connectors on the new drive.

Hint: if you take the whole computer to a small computer-store, they may remove/install the drive for a small fee, if you buy the new drive from them.

I Have A NEC ND-3540A DVD+R/RW Dual Layer Burner,

First thing to try would be a different brand of disc, there is never any guarantee with which brand of disc working with any specific DVD writer.

If you have tried different brands of disc and the DVD +R still does not work, I would reccomend visiting the manufacturer's website and downloading a firmware update for you specific DVD drive.

Note: Be very careful updating the firmware on the DVD drive, if the wrong firmware is used - or the firmware process not done correctly you can damage your DVD drive.

I had roxio creator software and had the drive

After working with Roxio, if you find the software you're looking for, Roxio Tech Support will not be able to give you support. Try contacting Inside Sales or a Roxio Technician and see if they can give you a copy of the software again - it will just depend on where you purchased your original version.

My dvd burner wont burn dvd's

try 3 things. ONE AT A TIME. #1 change your burn speed to a slower setting some dvd's will not burn as fast as they say on box.

#2.update firm ware for burner go to manufacturer's web site for your brand of dvds being used.

#3 change brand of DVD used. there are 3 major manufactures for almost all dvds and cd. The people who make disc for Sony and the other 2 companies that make everybody elses. (ie TDK,Memorex, etc....)

Not recognising dvd player/not playing dvds

Sounds like the laser pick-up is not reading the disc, or the spindle motor is not spinning so the dvd can be read.

NEC 3540A stopped reading blank DVD+DL

Hi JonPM
Burning a dual layer disk requires a functionality of the drive that is not used in the burning of normal disks. But before we consider that the drive may have a mechanical problem, lets clean out all your temporary garbage. Click on this link and download Cleanup 4.5.2 (http://majorgeeks.com/CleanUp_d4895.html

Instal and run the program. Once it has finished, reboot your computer and give burning onto the DL disk another try. Let me know what happens.
